Border Crossings: music and stories from around the world

Bethany UCC and Pilgrim Lutheran Church and School (two Ravenswood congregations) have been working together to welcome refugee families to Chicago. Now, YOU can help:

Join us for a night of award-winning storytelling, world class music, and local beer (thanks, Marz Community Brewing!) to raise money toward the $8000 it takes to sponsor a family.

Music from Nick Photinos of Eighth Blackbird and Northwestern's Yasuko Oura (Lyric Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera). Stories from Moth Grandslam champion Nestor Gomez (80 Minutes Around the World, Immigration Storytelling), Jitesh Jaggi, Mae Flores, Julie Meckler Davis, Jen Sherrill, Ekeng Bassey, Renata Camara, and others who now call Chicago, and the U.S., home.

Invite a friend and come make Chicago a more welcoming place.
