Ten Refugees. Five Storytellers. One Night.

The Story of Us. The Stories you do not know.

A Free Event

Everyday the media floods our lives with news stories about the refugee crisis. Often times, the experiences of the people living in the throes of it are silenced by design. Not anymore. We are refocusing the lens.

“The Story of Us” is a one night event that uses the power of storytelling to explore the lives of ten refugees from local communities. Five of them will be joining us to share their stories live. Join us as they recount their journeys to the United States and share their experiences as refugees in our communities. This program will offer live storytelling sessions, a mixed media exhibit, and opportunities for community dialogue.

No person’s story is alike, yet all of our stories are connected. Our experiences are parts of a larger human narrative. We encourage you to learn about the stories you don’t know. We invite you to The Story of Us.

*Join us as we start new conversations about refugee resettlement, community, and inclusion.*
