#TheJailerPart2 by @DevotchkaMusic @ErinMckeown @Flobots in support of immigration reform
The Jailer: Part 2” is a remix of Erin McKeown’s critically-acclaimed song, “The Jailer”, a collaboration between Star Jaguar’s Shawn King (Devotchka) and Stephen Brackett (Flobots), featuring Erin McKeown.
The trio united to create the “The Jailer: Part 2” remix and lyric video as a way to expand their support for just and humane immigration reform. The project was inspired by a visit to border communities in Arizona — part of an Air Traffic Control (ATC) Artist—Activist Retreat — where the musicians witnessed first-hand the challenges facing the recent immigrants and U.S. citizens residing there.

The National Education Association is sponsoring National Call In Days for Dreamers. The Senate is preparing to debate the most important immigration bill our country has seen in decades. Included in this monumental step towards compassionate, comprehensive reform of a broken system are protections for families to stay together; a path to citizenship for hardworking immigrants; and, for Dreamers –students who were brought here as children and who dream of belonging to a country they call home, a chance to finally become a citizen.

#Fairdora for Fairness: Women wear many hats - as community leaders, mothers, workers, volunteers, and much more. To celebrate this, the We Belong Together campaign is using the fedora as a metaphor for the many hats that women wear to create a brighter future for all. It is also a symbol of the need for immigration reform that treats women fairly, and a declaration that though women wear many hats, on this issue we speak with one voice.
