We Are Your Neighbors

Presented by Dima Ali and Suburban Unity Alliance

In order to build a progressive community that is successful at improving conditions and resolving problems, community members must appreciate existing diversity, establish diverse relationships with people of different backgrounds, and build strong alliances with different cultural groups through empathy. This all can be accomplished by bringing in diverse group representation into the center of civic activity! 

Oak Park community member Dima Ali in collaboration with Suburban Unity Alliance presents: We Are Your Neighbors! An evening dedicated in the building of community through cultural exposure and engagement. On the heels of Oak Park, Il becoming a Welcoming Village, learn from the first hand accounts of Muslim and refugee Oak Park, IL community members. Listen, unpack, and ask questions based on their first hand experiences as members of the Oak Park community pre and post ordinance.
