Class Description

In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to learn about some of the challenges immigrants face integrating into US culture. For some workshop participants, this may be the first time they hear directly about what life is like for immigrants who come to this country. Come with questions, and be ready to share, and to engage in deep listening. The workshop will also cover ways for people to be active and involved in immigration issues and support.

Donations are always welcome and appreciated!
