Justice For Our Neighbors-Nebraska (JFON-NE) is a nonprofit organization welcoming immigrants into our communities by providing free, high quality immigration legal services, education and advocacy for low-income individuals and families in Nebraska and western Iowa. We serve immigrants of all faiths, races, abilities and ages, with an emphasis on the most vulnerable-victims of domestic violence and other crimes against children. Our ten attorneys are all educated and experienced in broad immigration law with specialties in domestic abuse, child welfare and rural capacity building.
This casual and fun event features a variety of food from local Omaha food trucks, including Maria Bonita, Sweet Lime, 402 BBQ and samples from Omaha Steaks plus music and dancing with Satchel Grande, the hottest band around! Celebrity guests from the Food Network's Cupcake Wars will be there: Florian Bellanger, judge, and the Omaha-born Jake and Justin Blecha, popular carpenter brothers from the television show.
Patron Party guests are invited to enjoy an early evening sipping drinks and ordering food from locally-owned food trucks. They will rub elbows with celebrities and be involved with the judging of the dessert competition with students from the culinary schools of Iowa Western Community College and Metropolitan Community College. Learning opportunities regarding immigration will be available throughout the space to help supporters catch up on the significant immigration developments during the past year.
