Adichie speaks about the danger of only seeing and knowing a single story about a people. How many stories do you know of the rich traditions and history of Syria? Or Afghanistan? Of Iran? Palestine? Of Bangladesh?
Through the conversations between our volunteers and students, connections are made which enable individuals to break through the stereotypes and tell their own, personal stories.
In doing this, we build a collage of stories that represents the many diverse and unique narratives of everyone within our community, enriching our lives and fostering understanding and tolerance.
