King County Immigrants and Refugees will share their stories tonight


King County immigrants and refugees will be sharing their stories tonight – Thursday, Oct. 20 – at Dubsea Coffee in White Center, starting at 7 p.m.

Here’s more from the county:

Twenty-two percent of King County’s population are foreign-born, including refugees from all around the world and all walks of life. Join ART WORKS Projects and KCLS for a conversation on resettlement.

Through audio and visual stories, examine the impact of displacement on the lives of migrants in our community, understand the issues they face and explore how we can better welcome, work to counter negative stereotypes and promote a more nuanced understanding of our new neighbors.

Observe and learn more about ART WORKS Sanctuary & Sustenance photography and media exhibit as well as KCLS’ Immigrant Stories Project, a collection of audio recordings.

Sponsored by the KCLS Foundation and ART WORKS Projects and the University of Washington Center for Global Studies.
