Increase your understanding of the challenges immigrants face, and learn what we all can do, in Winchester and beyond, to create a welcoming, supportive community.
“This program focuses on promoting immigrant justice through the medium of storytelling. The rationale is that through storytelling we learn about other’s lived reality. When we can bridge these collective realities and difference through understanding individual experience, we are relating and empathizing. And when we empathize, we move out of indifference and towards action. I believe that is the true path to social justice. ” —Liora Norwich, WMCN Executive Director
All are welcome; this program is free of charge, supported by a grant from the Cummings Foundation and individual contributions from members of our community.
