Life Stories: Newcomers and Refugees

Tuesday, November 22, 2022

Listen to the real-life stories of people from marginalized groups and how they have experienced prejudice, social exclusion, or stigma. The series runs every Tuesday from Oct. 25 - Nov. 22 from 6:30-8:00 pm. Register for individual sessions.
Members of the Tri-Cities Local Partnership’s Immigrant Advisory Table will be talking about their journey to Canada and sharing who they are, why they decided to embark on this journey, and how this journey affected their perception of themselves. Judith Kambia Obatusa, host of the podcast, Messy Can't Stop Her, shares her stories of personal struggle, and seeks to educate and de-stigmatize immigrant acculturation challenges while empower other migrants in their promised land.
