· Strange Froots

Strange Froots is a trio of singers-songwriters, musicians and beatmakers, comprised of Mags, SageS and Naïka Champaïgne. Strange Froots is the coming together of different backgrounds of the same Black diaspora (Haiti, Jamaica, Senegal and Ghana) as well as drastically different musical influences, to convey the message that everyone should embrace who they are no matter where they’re from or what they’re going through, because in this life we are all fighting our individual battles, and even forget that others are fighting as well, but that shouldn’t keep us from living our best life while we can.

>>>>> Impacts of Double Punishment <<<<<
After decades in Canada, a woman is facing the injustices of double punishment, whereby migrants convicted of a crime can be deported after they have already been punished through the criminal system. Her deportation would mean separation from her children and sisters, all of whom live in Montreal.

Solidarity Across Borders is supporting this woman and her family and we need your help in raising money to cover the exorbitant legal fees.
