Wednesday, May 22
5:30 pm – 7:00pm 

Facilitator: Elaine Hirschenberger

In Elaine’s Notes on page 4 of our Your Guide, you can read about the efforts of the newly-formed group called Rockford Action for Immigrants (RAI) that is helping to resettle families who have traveled here from Venezuela and Honduras. This evening, we invite you to come and BE a real part of the warm and welcoming community that is Womanspace. Help us not only welcome them but also learn from these hopeful sisters and brothers who have undergone long and arduous journeys from their homelands. They are eager to find normalcy as they and their kids establish themselves and make friends, as they find both employment and enjoyment here in Rockford. This will be a great opportunity to get a closer and more intimate look at what immigrants actually experience in their search for safety and a place to call home. We are grateful that we will have several volunteer interpreters who will help facilitate our understanding of one another. Refreshments will be served!
