You, your friends and family are invited to watch a FREE film called "Welcome To Shelbyville" followed by a discussion about how our communities are changing and becoming more diverse. This film tells the story of a small, rural town in Tennessee whose residents are faced with challenges, fears and uncertainty about immigrant and refugee newcomers who have moved to their town. Our local communities in NW Iowa are faced with these same issues and this is an opportunity to talk about them as a community.
The film and community discussion will be held in several locations:
Monday, April 23rd, Sheldon, 12:30-2pm, NWICC Dining Room, Bldg A
Monday, April 23rd, Sioux Center, 7-8:30pm, TePaske Theatre, High School (discussion led by Pastor John Lee, Bethel CRC)
Tuesday, April 24th, Orange City, 7:30-9pm, Northwestern College, Vermeer Dining Room
This film and community discussion is co-sponsored by CASA, Northwestern College, Enlaces En Cristo, NW Iowa Community College and the Iowa Immigration Education Coalition and is part of the "Welcoming Iowa" project.
