[Tim] Burton's marvellously imaginative view of the afterlife as a ghoulish extension of mundane earthbound problems is a visionary masterstroke crammed with wit and invention.

pueblo-unido-logoTonight's nonprofit partner is PUEBLO UNIDO. Pueblo Unido provides legal service navigation and client advocate support for immigrants who are facing deportation. They connect clients to adequate legal representation and help gather evidence to strengthen cases against removal. Since our formation in April 2017, 10 of their clients have been released from detention and reunited with their families.

Legal representation is the single most predictive factor in whether a person will avoid deportation, secure more stable status, and achieve the right to remain in their community. Because immigration is civil—not criminal—court, however, the government does not provide legal counsel to those who cannot afford to hire their own. As a result, most people facing removal are forced to represent themselves, and are ultimately less likely to prevail against deportation. Pueblo Unido organized in April 2017 in response to this injustice to keep families and our communities together.

Thanks to the carelessness of a cute little dog, newlyweds Barbara and Adam are killed in a freak auto accident. Upon arriving in the outer offices of Heaven, the couple finds that, thanks to a century's worth of bureaucratic red tape, they're on a long celestial waiting list. Before they can earn their wings, the two must occupy their old house as ghosts for the next fifty years. Alas, the house is now owned by insufferable yuppies Charles and Delia Deetze. Horrified at the prospect of sharing space with these obnoxious interlopers, Barbara and Adam do their best to scare the Deetzes away, but their house-haunting skills are pathetic at best. In desperation, the ghostly couple engage the services of a veteran scaremeister: a yellow-haired, snaggle-toothed, profane, flatulent "gonzo" spirit named Beetlejuice. The problem: Beetlejuice cannot be trusted-especially when he falls in love with Lydia, Charles and Delia's gloomy, black-clad teenaged daughter.
