We also met with our partner organizations: Kennesaw State University (KSU), Latin American Association and members of the Welcoming America

Welcoming America
.The purpose was to discuss a new book project involving 30 immigrant and refugee students attending the majority immigrant high schools.

Based on a successful model used in Minneapolis, St. Paul and Fargo, the book will be a vehicle to generate awareness about the immigrant experience. The book will include links to the students’ first-person video narrative, a study guide, and glossary to help teachers use the book as an educational resource when teaching about immigration.
