EVENT DAY: Thursday, September 17th

EVENT TIME: 6-7:30PM

INFO:

Strangers in Town tells the story of how global migration unexpectedly transformed and enriched Garden City, Kansas. It brought great challenges to the community, including demands for housing, social services, education, and infrastructure. For the current students at Garden City High School, the town’s remarkable diversity is all they’ve ever known. Strangers in Town gives new meaning to the city’s motto: “the world grows here,” and provides an inspiring view of human possibility in the face of change.

Following the movie, refugee and immigrant members from our own community will share their stories, experiences and reactions to the video.

Welcoming Week is a national movement in which communities gather to recognize and celebrate the contributions of immigrants to our communities and bring people together across lines of difference to develop greater understanding and mutual support.
