“Girl Rising” at Talento Bilingue, July 12, 2014

As you may or may not know, Houston is the current destination for our many young immigrants and refugees fleeing their home countries for safety. This Saturday we will show “Girl Rising” and have a panel of guest speakers from Las Americas Middle Newcomer School. A HISD middle school that specifically teaches the young immigrant and refugee population who come to the US with little to no English proficiency. The principal of this school, representatives from PAIR (Partnership for the Advancement of the Immersion for Refugees) and HISD’s refugee department, and students will be a part of this panel to educate us! I promise you will be enlightened!We are also collecting clothing and any toiletries and supplies at this event! All donations will go to Las Americas clothing closet as well as to the HISD school that will soon house many of the incoming refugees! Drop off for supplies begins at 12:00 pm. Viewing and panel begins as 1:00 pm. This is one for the entire family! Light food and refreshments provided.
