Don't write people's stories for them. This is the theme of this session. We all see people and make snap judgments but learning to suspend this judgement is key to life, love and interfaith relationships. 

During this time, we will explore the power of appearance, particuraly in relation to immigration. I am writing my senior thesis on Muslim immigrants in the United States and the prejudice they face and how better education could restore and prevent it. I currently live in an immigrant community in Raleigh where my roommate and I are the only Americans. Through my living experience and the research I am conducting for my thesis, I have had the opportunity to explore what interfaith stories immigrants have to share and how a lack of interfaith work impacts them.

We will create a space called the  middle ground, which is demonstrated by a very popular Youtube channel called the Middle Ground. (I highly suggest you check it out).
We will also discuss the history of immigration here in the United States and recent events surrounding immigration and the role interfaith can play in this change. Overall, we will explore the power of listening to the interfaith stories of immigrants and how to equip the younger generation to be better listeners and story tellers.
