Immigrant Defense Project
Immigrant Defense Project (IDP) is a national non-profit organization based in NYC that works to secure fairness and justice for immigrants in the U.S., with a unique expertise focusing on those who are accused or convicted of crimes.
We aim to transform a racially biased criminal legal system that violates basic human rights and an immigration system that tears thousands of families apart. We fight to end the current era of unprecedented mass deportation via strategies that attack these two interconnected systems at multiple points — strengthening immigrant defense through training and expert advice; challenging unfair laws through impact litigation; shaping just policies through advocacy; and empowering communities and advocates through alliance building and education, and changing negative perceptions about immigrants through communications and messaging.
We help lay the groundwork for a day when the criminal and immigration laws of the United States respect and uphold the human rights of everyone, fulfilling the values of equality, justice and fairness for all.

Food Flash is an event created and hosted by Tilit NYC to raise funds for programs that directly affect the hospitality industry and its community. Food Flash is a flash tattoo event, meaning predetermined quick (30 minutes or less) pieces that the canvas, you!, can get for a reduced rate from normal working rates. The artists are donating their time and their expertise to this cause and we love them for that!
Food Flash 2017 will take place at our showroom in NYC on Sunday November 12th. We are fortunate to partner with Leaf Chang, owner of Gnostic Tattoo in Brooklyn for the inaugural event. Leaf will be joined by artist Lina Hsiao. This event’s charity recipient will be the Immigrant Defense Project (IDP), a NYC-based non-profit that works to protect and secure the rights of all immigrants, focusing on those who are accused or convicted of crimes.
100% of your ticket price and 100% of all profits from event swag will go to IDP to help further their mission. You can help by taking part in the event, donating on your own or simply spreading the word about IDP.
