|NIRV – New Immigrant and Refugee Voices
We have raised $25,000 of our $65,000 goal for the implementation of NIRV – the New Immigrant and Refugee Voices documentary filmmaking training and production project in the US.
Please help us reach our remaining $40,000 goal by August 31 so that we can start the training in the fall.
We have the perfect local partner, the Irish International Immigrant Center (IIIC), with whom we are working on project development, fundraising and community outreach. IIIC offers 3,000-plus people, from more than 120 countries, a full range of free or low cost legal, educational and wellness programs.
Fundamental to the IIIC’s core values is their vision of a shared society where all people are valued and enjoy equal opportunities and protections. Their Education and Inclusion Program builds connections across immigrant communities and between new immigrants and the general public. With the deliberate intent of helping people be at ease with differences, IIIC conducts and partners with organizations like CSFilm to provide experiential learning and storytelling programs. As part of the next phase of their Inclusion Program, IIIC and CSFilm are working together to provide a program that allows immigrants to tell their and their communities’ stories through the production of short documentary films.
We hope to begin this work in the fall but need an additional $40,000 by August 31 to make that happen.
Thank you so much for your help. No amount is too small!
