Friendsgiving with Miry's List 2018

Each November is Friendsgiving at Miry's List, when we ask people in our community to invite their friends over, share a meal, and raise money for our organization and families.  All funds raised go towards supporting Miry's List and new arrival resettling families in America. Last year, over 50 Friendsgiving gatherings took place throughout November and we raised over $30,000. This year we hope to meet and exceed last year's fundraising effort and our goal is $50,000.

USC's Beer Book Club - New Beginnings - Fundraiser for Miry's List

Who we are:
Kitchen Table is a social dining app that brings people together to share dining experiences, make meals accessible, easy, and memorable, and redefine what it means to eat local.

This gathering:
Welcome to the first Left Coast meeting of the Beer Book Club. This event is a great beer tasting, potluck, and dinner party all mashed into one. Here’s how it works: BBC meets on a semi-regular basis to share and taste some great beers. The potluck part is I pick a theme, and ya’ll bring some beers that match the theme (see below for the FAQ). I provide some snacks (feel free to bring your own to help supplement), I provide tasting knowledge (aka spout some BS about what I think the beer tastes like), and everyone has a ton of fun! This BBC’s theme is new beginnings.

Tickets are $5/person. Save your seat on Kitchen Table App: https://www.thekitchentableapp.com/meals/1565

FAQ:
The title includes the word “book.” Do I have to study beforehand?

No. There is no reading required. Just beer drinking. I’m going to have a personal tasting notebook, so feel free to bring (or start) yours too.

Who provides the beer?

We all do, it’s basically a tasting potluck. Bring enough beer for you, and if everyone does this, there’ll be plenty. If the beer you want to bring is sold in 6 packs, great! If it’s sold in 22oz bottles, also cool, bring some of those. Pre-chilled bottles are best, but if the bottle you want isn’t cold, we’ll find a way to fix that!

Stronger Shines the Light Inside: Month of Photography LA

Over the course of more than a year, photographer Angie Smith has documented the process of refugees rebuilding their lives in not just an American but an Idahoan context. She has photographed Rwandans in their first snowfall, teenage Iraqis in their first prom dresses, and Burmese practicing their first English words. Along with writer Hanne Steen, Smith has been invited to drink tea in the homes of new Americans from Somalia, Afghanistan, Syria, and Sudan, treated with the same hospitality and generosity that her subjects are so grateful for themselves. She has heard the laughter of children playing freely in the grassy courtyards of apartment buildings, been invited into churches, graduations, traditional wedding ceremonies, and witnessed the warmth of Idahoans sharing in the beauty and bounty of their beloved home.

LA Jews for Refugees Assembly

After a year of attacks on the U.S. refugee program, the number of refugees entering the country has dramatically slowed. At a time of unprecedented global need, the U.S. is failing to meet a basic obligation to victims of war, terror, torture, and persecution. In response, a coalition of Jewish congregations and organizations have come together with HIAS to hold a community-wide Jews For Refugees Assembly.

We are proud to be offering delicious Syrian fare from New Arrival Supper Club, featuring new arrival chefs from resettled families in the Miry's List program, and Miry will be speaking at the event as well.
