BRACE and 5 Consulates Hosting Immigration Fair

FRAMINGHAM – The Brazilian-American Center (BRACE) is hosting an immigration and health fair on Sunday, November 18 from noon to 5 p.m. at BRACE on Route 135. General Consulates of Brazil, Guatemala, El Salvador, Ecuador, and Peru are scheduled to participate.

The Brazilian American Center (BRACE) is taking another step to reach out to the large underserved Latino Communities from the MetroWest area. On November 18, BRACE will promote the First Health and Immigration Fair, at 569 Waverly Street, in the Saint Tarcisius Parish back hall. 

Along with the Brazilian Consulate we will also have the presence of the Consulates from El Salvador, Peru, Guatemala and Ecuador. They will be offering their citizens consular services and information.

Volunteer lawyers will be assisting with citizenship applications and trained volunteers will help individuals applying to the Health Connector.

In support of the local community, BRACE is establishing local partnerships to provide access to preventative care for low-income, undocumented immigrant families. These services also include care for specific health conditions such as cancer, diabetes, high cholesterol and vaccinations.

We will also promote dental hygiene and mental health awareness.  

Information about Technical School, College and Financial Education will also be provided. 

A panel with the Fuller Middle School building project and the December 11th ballot information will be on display during the event. 

Due to the high demand, services provided by the Brazilian Consulate and application for the Health Connector, need to be scheduled in advance through the following links : 

Those who would like to support us will have a chance to purchase and enjoy traditional brazilian food such as pastel (stuffed fried dough) and soups.
