MN Immigrant Freedom Network
I was recently forwarded an email from the Spanish Dept regarding an opportunity to volunteer with the MN Immigrant Freedom Network. As a spanish studies and foreign studies major, I am especially interested in working with media and immigrant youth in particular. The description states the volunteer might help place stories in community media to increase the visibility of immigrant voices on important issues to the community... This sounds like a perfect opportunity to utilize the technology we have available in this class to bring immigrant voice into public discourse through interactive projections or something similar.
I have been in contact with Alondra form the Immigrant Freedom Network
and mentioned that I am in the COLA class and she is super excited to work something out. I am going to be meeting with her in a week to discuss how we can work together. If anyone is interested in working with me and creating an event with the Immigrant Freedom Network, let me know. This is just in the beginning stages and I am anticipating an event taking place towards the end of the semester... If you have any questions for me, or want to know more information, feel free to email me or talk to me in class. Let me know your thoughts!
