What IF…? Online Community Conversation Series: Coming To America – Fall 2020
The Interactivity Foundation (IF) has partnered with the Friends of India Association and the Diversity Relations Council at Leisure World in Silver Spring, Maryland to organize this Coming to America series of events with stories and conversations about immigration. We are meeting monthly on Zoom for four months (September – December) to first hear stories from volunteer participants about one aspect of their immigration experience. Following the stories, we then split into breakout rooms for small group conversations for about an hour to reflect upon the stories we just heard, share our own stories, and talk about various aspects of immigration in general. Each of the four sessions will have a different sub-topic and set of questions for participants to explore.
The 1st session of this series was held on Thursday, September 17, 2020, at 5:30 pm eastern time. The sub-topic and questions for that 1st session were–
Why Do People Migrate?
- What drives people to leave?
- What pulls them to the new places?
