YWCA set to explore “Hopes and Realities of Burmese Refugees”

“Freedom to Dream: the Hopes and Realities of Burmese Refugees”

YWCA Northeast Indiana will begin the 2014 Diversity Dialogue season with an exploration into the life and experiences of the Burmese refugees living in our community.

Faustina Adat and Eva Cung, YWCA staff members and Burmese refugees themselves, will introduce attendees to their language and culture, and provide insight into the daily trials they experience living in the United States, their adopted home. Those in attendance will leave with a better understanding of why the Burmese are here and how members of the two cultures can better relate.

Come explore this topic with us in the first installment of the 2014 Diversity Dialogue series on Wednesday, January 22, from noon to 1:30 pm at YWCA Northeast Indiana’s 1610 Spy Run Avenue office. This and all Diversity Dialogues are free and open to the public. Free parking is available.

To join us, please RSVP on our YWCA Northeast Indiana Facebook page, or contact Administrative Coordinator Sue Hiatt at SHiatt@ywcaerew.org or (260) 424-4908 ext.254.

For more information on these Dialogues, stay tuned to our website (www.ywca.org/NEIN) and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/YWCANortheastIndiana).
