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.

Friendsgiving with Miry's List

This November, add an element of giving back to your holiday gatherings.

In 2017, over 50,000 refugees will be resettled in the U.S. Mostly families with young kids, they leave behind family, friends, and virtually everything they own to find safety and a brighter future. 

Miry's List is a nonprofit organization that provides a mechanism for people to directly help New Arrival families from Syria, Afghanistan, Iran, and Iraq with the things, people, and services they need to thrive in their new lives in America.

This month, we're empowering the Miry's List community around the world to support our next 100 New Arrival families by gathering with friends, sharing a meal, and raising money to support these new members of our community. 

Use this site to create a team, set a goal, and host a holiday meal with your friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors. Cook, have it catered, or do it potluck-style. Each guest makes a contribution to Miry’s List in whatever amount they can.

100% of your Friendsgiving with Miry's List donations will provide life-changing programming and services to New Arrival families resettling in America.

Our goal is to raise $75,000 this month for our next 100 families. Whether we're successful or not, these families WILL arrive before the end of 2017. Join us to ensure that each of these families get the warm, loving welcome to America that they deserve.

Uplift Our Neighbor: Crossfit for Haroon

Uplift Our Neighbor: Crossfit for Haroon

Miry's List and Nela Athletics are throwing a benefit for our new neighbor, Haroon of Aghanistan!

- we'll work out
- we'll eat, drink, and sing
- we'll bid on Silent Auction items
- we'll support Haroon and the mission of Miry’s List to welcome or newest neighbors

About Haroon: 

On August 22, 2017, Haroon Salhadost's plane landed at LAX from Kabul, Afghanistan. He moved in with Danny and Ann Marie Richter, a local Eagle Rock family, who were eager to welcome him to American and help make his transition easier and more kind. Haroon moved into their guest house.

Maybe it was the jetlag, the adrenaline of begining resettlement, or the excitement of the unknown, but Haroon showed up the next morning to Crossfit Eagle Rock for an 8:30am class together with Danny. Since then, Haroon has become a regular! 

Haroon just moved into permanent housing, a studio apartment in Northridge. We'd like to help him cover the first couple months of rent as he is still seeking employment. Funds we raise will help Haroon get on his feet in his new life in LA.

Workout details: 
“August 23rd ”
6 rounds for time:
5 pull-ups (or ring-rows)
5 hand stand push-ups (or push-ups)
25 sit-ups (or Russian twists)

Thank you to our partners Nela CrossFit Eagle Rock for demonstrating so epically what's possible when we welcome our newest neighbors.
