Solidarity Dinner for Eberto Romero Tonite: Restaurante 'EL Coquito'

Eberto Romero is a friend and a beloved community organizer in Houston who has undergone a series of brain surgeries since August of this year.

Eberto has done extensive work with Border Networks for Human Rights and Hondure├▒os Unidos. Eberto has been greatly involved in the work of immigrant rights in Houston for several years and has been a critical part of our organizing efforts and advancements.

Since August, Eberto has had nine brain surgeries in hopes of ridding a brain tumor; his last intervention was twenty days days ago. Currently, he recovers in Ben Taub Hospital and remains in stable condition.

A group of family and friends have organized a fundraiser dinner taking place tonight in Houston, TX in order to help alleviate some of the hospital expenses.

Where: Restaurante El Coquito, 6121 Hillcroft AVE; Sharpstown Area. 713.776 0220
What: Solidarity dinner for Eberto
When: Tonite, Thursday, December 18th. Starting 7:30 PM

I urge you to please support Eberto in any possible way. I have had the pleasure of working with him; he is just a stellar individual who has given his heart to the struggle of immigrants.

En la lucha,

-Juli
