POR LIBERTAD DE DETROIT
*Detroit's Shout For Freedom*
On Day of the Dead, TANK425, Zumba Mexican Grille and Freedom House host a night of art dedicated to immigration and freedom. Local artists, youth from TAP Gallery, and refugees and asylum seekers have created art pieces from chairs that used to be in Zumba Mexican Grille in Royal Oak. All proceeds from the chairs go to support the work of Freedom House in Detroit.
NOV. 2, 2012, 5-9PM, STE. ANNE'S CHURCH HALL
Clients at Freedom House in Detroit, MI collaborated with animation Director Gary Schwartz in the creation of an animated film bringing their customized 'Freedom Chairs' to life. It will premiere at EL Grito por Libertad de Detroit (Detroit Shout for Freedom) on Nov. 2, 2012.
"Chairs that don't sit still..."

Freedom House is a temporary home for indigent survivors of persecution from around the world seeking legal shelter in the United States and Canada. Our mission is to uphold a fundamental American principle, one inscribed on the base of the Statue of Liberty, providing safety for those "yearning to breathe free."
Guided by our belief that all persons deserve to live free from oppression and to be treated with justice, compassion and dignity, we offer a continuum of care and services to persons living in our shelter, as well as to other refugees in need. We advocate for systemic change that more fully recognizes the rights of refugees and asylum seekers.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people flee their native land in fear for their lives. They give up everything -- their home, family, friends, and job -- to travel to a land whose culture and language differ from their own. Most can never return home.
Freedom House, a first step in that new beginning, assists hundreds of refugees each year. We are a micro-global community supporting each other's journey through loss and tremendous personal challenge and, ultimately, toward hope and joy.
We were founded in 1983 as the Detroit/Windsor Refugee Coalition. In 1987 Freedom House moved to the unused Convent of St. Anne's Church, which remains our location today.
Freedom House offers comprehensive services to those seeking asylum in the United States and Canada, including: food and shelter, free legal aid, medical and mental health care, recreation, art, ESL, education and job training. After they receive asylum, Freedom House can help residents with rent, household establishment and other tasks as they adapt to their new country.
