Each year, the Chaldean American Student Association at the University of Michigan invites our fellow CASA chapters to visit us in Ann Arbor for our annual charity event, Live From Babylon, featuring music, dancing, and other cultural activities to benefit a charity in our community. This year, our event will take place on Friday, March 9th, 2018 at Cantina in Ann Arbor. The organization we have chosen to donate the proceeds of our event to is CODE Legal Aid, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing high quality legal advocacy and assistance to those in need, the majority of whom are refugees and immigrants within the Middle Eastern community of Metro Detroit.
The turmoil in Iraq and surrounding areas has taken a toll on thousands of families, which are comprised of mostly Christians, including Assyrians, Chaldeans, Syriacs, Armenians, and other ancient and historic cultures. These refugees have been forced to flee their homelands, and many have relocated in the Southeastern Michigan area. CODE Legal Aid's primary goal is to serve as a legal voice for these refugees, assisting them with obtaining citizenship, finding permanent housing, and assimilating into American culture. Most recently, they have been providing pro bono legal services to families of immigrants being detained by ICE. Donated funds are mainly used to offset costs from legal matters, so that if a refugee or immigrant client can qualify for pro bono legal services, CODE can take them on at no cost.
With your help and generous donations to CODE Legal Aid, we hope to make Live From Babylon 2018 the most successful event in CASA’s history. We wholeheartedly believe that the mission of CODE aligns with the goals of the Chaldean American Student Association, as well as the Chaldean community at-large. We hope that you are able to aid in our fundraising efforts by choosing to donate to Live From Babylon.
