ImmiGratitude

Heritage and Family Fun

Explore the stories of your family’s immigration and journeys, whether through forced labor, in exile, survival or to seek a better life.  One’s individual and collective narrative is rich with tales of tragedy and triumph and is an opportunity for discovering and acknowledging one’s ancestral connections and contributions.  Through journaling, sharing, and creative artwork and performance, one will honor and give gratitude to those who came before us.   We will learn of each other’s family immigrant journeys, building bridges of compassion.
