[ARCHIVED] Community Invited to Explore the Personal Stories of Immigrants and Refugees at Upcoming Event

EAST LANSING, Mich. — As part of the City of East Lansing’s ongoing commitment to honoring diversity, the East Lansing Human Relations Commission will be hosting a special upcoming event entitled Opening Minds: Learning From and About Immigrants and Refugees. The event will be taking place on Tuesday, Nov. 27 from 6:30-8 p.m. at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Road, and all interested community members are invited to attend.

The event will feature a screening of the short film, “What Happens to a Dream Deferred,” followed by a facilitated panel discussion.

This special event will serve to explore the personal stories and experiences of immigrants and refugees in the local community. The event will also serve to create a dialogue about how the East Lansing community can work together to support all community members.

This event is the second in a continuing series of East Lansing events planned in an effort to spark community conversations around the topics of diversity and inclusion. The first event, Face to Face: A Conversation about Race, was hosted earlier this year.

“We invite community members to join us for another meaningful event, at which we can all learn more about the personal experiences of the immigrants and refugees living right here in our community and what we can do to support them,” said East Lansing City Councilmember Aaron Stephens.
