As the City of Atlanta welcomes new arrivals, it is important to provide opportunities for both immigrants and groups from the receiving community to come together to grow in their understanding of one another. By creating an avenue for discussion, each of whom brings to the table unique perspectives and life experiences. Through facilitating story sharing and face to face interaction, we can play a role in encouraging strangers to become neighbors. Dialogues can break down barriers caused by stereotypes and humanize those previously deemed as the ‘other.’
