Immigration Stories – online now

Wednesday, December 16th, 2009

We just finished an amazing workshop with Coloradans for Immigrant Rights – a project of the American Friends Service Committee. The storytellers were both recent immigrants as well as people who have worked for immigrants rights as allies in this process and struggle. The stories were raw and powerful and real.

The result was a packed house at The Bug Theater on Dec 16th for a screening of all the stories and a discussion afterward with all the storytellers. We have DVDs of the stories available for purchase, the proceeds going to the creation of a discussion guide to go with the stories. If interested, please contact Daniel Weinshenker (daniel at milehighstories dot com).

KGNU Denver/Boulder also ran a story on the project today (Dec 16th) on Morning Magazine.
