Sharing Our Voices, Sharing Our Love in Boulder

By Gabriela Flora, Regional Project Voice Organizer, AFSC Colorado

This spring, AFSC was invited to show some of our digital stories from “Borders Lifted, Voices Raised” and provide background information on immigration issues to parents at a bilingual middle school in Boulder. The bilingual school has confronted racist threats to students recently.  The invitation to AFSC was part of a parent and administrative effort to raise consciousness about immigration issues.
