Tipping their hat to the beloved Latin American tradition of ‘Las Pasadas,’ the Chelsea Collaborative will sponsor an event on Dec. 20 from 4-7 p.m. where participants will march and sing through the streets in solidarity with all immigrants and refugees.
Las Pasadas is a tradition that recreates the Biblical story of Mary and Joseph’s perilous journey, running from danger and seeking shelter.
Collaborative organizers said it was the perfect backdrop to raise awareness and celebrate the strength of the Chelsea community in concert with all immigrants and refugees.
At 3:45 p.m., those interested in marching will gather at the Chelsea Police Station.
They will march through the streets and up to City Hall singing carols and chants, arriving at City Hall around 4:30 p.m.
At 5 p.m., they will proceed to the Collaborative, 318 Broadway, for a time of song, prayer and a community celebration.
