Past Gatherings

Listening Lab: migration stories - we all have one. what’s yours?

WED, May 22 @ 5:45pm-7:15pm
LOCATION: North University Community Branch Library

We hear or read many stories of migrants, especially living in the San Diego area. When we listen to them in a conversation in which we choose to “show up” and share our own feelings and stories about migration, moving, relocating… we realize that we all have, either personally or within our family, personal stories that are about moving somewhere else.
