Join First Person American to celebrate New York City's 10th Annual Immigrant Heritage Week, organized by the NYC Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs, on Sunday, April 21, 2013, 4:30-7pm, with our What's Your Story? 2013 Welcoming Stories Potluck and Screening series, which explores personal narratives of people immigrating to America and being a welcoming person.
First Person American is teaming up with Immigrant Movement International to present What's Your Story? 2013 Welcoming Stories Potluck and Screening — a community event screening short films that explore personal narratives from immigrants about the people who welcomed them and changed their lives forever.
What's Your Story? 2013 Welcoming Stories Potluck and Screening will start at 4:30pm with a potluck style 'welcoming dinner' where local residents can meet others in the community and welcome each other to the neighborhood with favorite dishes from their home country.
After the screening, get resources on how you can tell your own Welcoming Story and learn easy tips on simple acts of welcoming that can help a newcomer transform his or her life.
The event is free and open to the public.
