Join us for a screening and discussion of the documentary Day One. The film follows a group of teenage refugees from war-torn countries who are enrolled at a unique public school for refugees and immigrants-only in St. Louis, MO, where they are guided through an inspirational program of education, healing and trauma intervention by devoted educators, some of whom have chosen to relocate to the inner city to support their students.

Panelists:

  • Deb Drennan, CEO of Freedom House Detroit, an organization that provides comprehensive services to asylum seekers in Detroit
  • Hellen Zziwa, REACH Team Member, Director of Strategy and Engineering at HUIT

Moderated by Dr. Divya Anand, Cambridge College; Director, Gaia Connections

This is part of the Anti-Racism Film Series we are co-sponsoring with Harvard Library, the Harvard Office for Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging, and the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
