The Immigrant Bail Fund raised $2,400 at a dance event on Saturday to support its work posting bail for people held in immigration detention who are unable to do so on their own.

The event, a dance party with refreshments, was held at the New Haven People’s Center on Howe Street and attended by around five dozen people. The Immigrant Bail Fund is a recent initiative, founded at the beginning of the year as a collaboration between the Connecticut Immigrants Rights Alliance, Unidad Latina en Acción and the Connecticut Bail Fund. The suggested donation for the event was 20 dollars per attendee.
