Aug 20, Oct 20 & Nov 10 – Documentary Screening and Conversation: Welcoming Strangers

Fort Wayne and Indianapolis have settled the largest groups of Burmese refugees in recent years. Most Indianapolis residents are still unaware of the presence of refugees, the contributions refugees make to our community, and the immense challenges refugees experience in Indianapolis. The First Baptist Church’s experiences and learnings as they approach ten years of sharing life with Burmese refugees is the focus of this documentary. As a product of the Desmond Tutu Fellowship, this documentary was created by Tutu Fellows Dr. Susan Adams and Dr. Brooke Kandel-Cisco as a provocation to foster greater awareness and to encourage public discourse around peace, reconciliation, and justice through civil, respectful, and enlightening cross-cultural interactions.

Join us for a powerful film, a panel conversation with individuals featured in the documentary, and refreshments.
