We the People: Learning from Refugees and Immigrants

  • Location
    Marshall, Michigan
  • Status

The Problem

We are actively working to assist refugees and recent immigrants who relocate to our area. Marshall, Michigan and the surrounding areas lack some of the resources available to people who relocate in more metropolitan areas. We want to work from a place of mutual respect: our students will learn a great deal from people with diverse backgrounds and we want to share that with others in our community, especially within our school system.

Our Plan

We want to coordinate local efforts with Marshall's chapter of Half the Sky which works to promote, among other things, education about issues facing refugees and immigrants in our area. Students will work with experienced social workers and other trained professionals to interview refugees and make video documentaries to educate our community.
