Location: Mujeres Brew House (1983 Julian Ave., San Diego)

Date/Time: Wednesday, October 12th, 2022 from 6:30PM-8:30PM

Join SDIRC for some Halloween-themed fun and raise money for the Borderlands Get Free Fund, a bond fund that helps immigrants get out of detention. Costumes welcome. In addition to donations from individuals and organizations, a portion of drink proceeds from Mujeres Brew House will be donated to the bond fund. Make a donation to the bond fund here.
