Hey folks,

It’s that time of year, time for hotpot!’s annual holiday party! This year it will be on December 9th from 6-9pm in West Philly.

hotpot! invites or family and friends (yes, you!) to celebrate another year with us and give gratitude. We’ll have food, a cash bar, a bumpin music mix, and white elephant gift exchange. We ask for a $7-10 donation, but no one will be turned away.  Please RSVP before December 6th to hotpotphilly AT Gmail. DOT com.

We support DreamActivist PA

We as an organisation support the efforts of one of our own and a Dream Activist fighting for Stanly Moriah’s freedom. Please support Erika, and the rest of the Dream Activists in this cause.

Hi y’all,

I know hotpot does a lot of immigration work and I’m wondering if hotpot would be willing to sign on to a letter by DreamActivist PA to John Morton asking him to get Stanley Moriah, our current END case, out of detention? We’re asking a lot of groups in the Philly area doing immigration work to sign on and I thought it’d be cool to ask y’all. I attached info about the case below, the first is a petition and the second is a link to the letter.
