The question of who belongs is at the heart of the political divide in the United States and the European Union. In this interactive workshop, participants will dig into the immigration history of Germany and the U.S., media representations of immigrants, and make connections to their own stories. Together, we will develop strategies to build solidarity for immigrant and racial justice, and work towards pluralistic democracy in our community.
