Photos: A night of punk raises funds for the Community Bond Project


Natalia Espina and Neo McAdams speak about the benefits of a Community Bond Project and its mission at Near Future gallery. Friday, Feb. 24, 2017. — photo by Zak Neumann.

The Near Future gallery space’s existence is coming to an end soon, but on Friday, Feb. 24 the art space hosted it first and only rock show, with all proceeds going to benefit the new Eastern Iowa Community Bond Project. The project’s mission is to raise funds to bond out community members who may be detained by immigration and connect them with appropriate legal aid to allow them to remain in the community and to keep families intact.

Local punk bands Jailbus, Beyond Peace and the newly formed Death Dude all played sets to a packed gallery and spoke about standing up for immigrants and continual support for the Community Bond Project. The event raised over $600 from donations and poster sales. For updates or to make a donation, visit communitybondproject.org.
