Our Turn: A Conversation for Women 10:00-11:30 am

Mill City Quarter Club Room
322 2nd St. S.
MCC women, you are invited to attend Our Turn: A Conversation for Women. This week, Lou Burdick hosts on the topic of Immigration. Immigrants and immigration are front and center in the national dialogue in America today, and the immigrant experience is deeply woven into the fabric of this country's creation. Many immigrants came to America seeking greater economic opportunity, while some, such as the Pilgrims in the early 1600s, arrived in search of religious freedom. Others came unwillingly as slaves or willingly paid for their passage by signing on for years of indentured servitude before becoming citizens. What is your family's immigrant story and how is this historical heritage reflected in your life and your attitudes? Do you have any friends or family members who are immigrants?
Our Turn meets every other Thursday, alternating between morning and afternoon times. Hosts, topics and occasionally locations change each time.
