* Open mic signup at the door

Eman Rimawi — activist, photographer, writer, poet and performer — has struggled with Lupus for a long time. This summer her condition took a drastic turn for the worse. She has been hospitalized since late July as a result of paralysis in her lower body and left hand, a heart attack, and a mild stroke. She hopes to be moved into a rehab center soon.

Eman's financial situation is difficult. Although she is hopeful that funding for her medical care will be authorized, she still faces a huge uphill battle to keep her apartment and pay her bills.

Come spend an evening of celebration and solidarity with sister Eman, who has touched so many of us through her life, art and activism. Eman’s photography will be on display, including pieces from her recent visit to Palestine. All proceeds from the event will go to Eman.

Contact Greg of Absent Cause zine at 347-436-5490 if you can help with party arrangements or donate items for raffle.

Donations, artwork, or other items for raffle can by sent to Absent Cause, PO Box 1568, New York, NY 10276. Make checks payable to Eman Rimawi. Messages of solidarity can also be sent in care of redguard@gmail.com
