Alaska Institute for Justice "Beyond Borders"

  • Williwaw 609 F Street Anchorage, AK, 99501 United States (map)

The Alaska Institute for Justice is looking for volunteers and recommendations on immigrant storytellers for the Beyond Borders event.  The intent of this fundraising event is to raise awareness of AIJ's nonprofit mission, to positively influence the public perception of immigrants in our community, and to emphasize that our diverse population brings strength, economic vitality, and resilience to our community. 

They hope to provide local immigrants or children of immigrants an opportunity to share their unique stories with the public.  The evening centers around seven storytellers who will each present a short, personal narrative.  The topics may include their particular immigration experience, how they transitioned to Alaskan life, and or how AIJ or other community agencies have made in difference in their lives.
