Featuring a six-person panel of local refugees, immigrants, and student leaders, this event will highlight the refugee and immigrant experience here in Concord, and explore how the community can work together to make it better. Following panel presentations, attendees will break out into facilitated, small group discussions. All will reconvene at the end for an open community discussion. The meeting will be facilitated by Gerri King, Social Psychologist & Organizational Consultant.

Beverages and light snacks will be served. All members of the Concord community are welcome.

  1. Will you be having another rally like the one above? I alaways go to the Conord Multicultural festival and aslo wonder if you would consider putting on a show with African music, dancing, story telling and maybe food at possibly NH Techincal school or Concord high or at St. Mary’s. I believe in your mission and will spread the word.
