Community comes out in force for 'Vox Storytellers'

Vox hosted it's second event of the season for "Connecting our Local & Global Neighbors" at A 2nd Cup Coffee Shop on Sat. February 27. "Vox Story Tellers" featured several clients from our 2016 community partners: The Community Cloth, IEDA Relief, and PAIR Houston. Rather than putting energy in solely discussing the past that some of these individuals have gone through, the event was dedicated towards these individuals sharing their vision of THEIR FUTURE!

Speakers included refugees from Burma, Afghanistan, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. A Student, Artisan Woman, and Author/Military Official helped us today to see that the term "refugee" is so much more than what media portrays. Our neighbors have a name and they are human.


The goal of this event was find ways to support these individuals in their goals/dreams, and listen to some of the challenges and/or positives that they have had in achieving or attaining their ambitions.

On Sunday, January 31st, Vox Culture opened its its 2016 series, Connecting our Local and Global Neighbors, by hosting a film screening and open discussion on the topic of refugees. The goal of the series is to engage in a deeper conversation on the subject of refugees.

 

The event presented three short films: My Honeymoon (by Eileen Hofer), From Nepal to Seattle's Rainer Valley (by Pangeality Productions of Seattle WA), and Shaya (by Amir Noorani).

This opening event for the Connecting our Local and Global Neighbors series was held in collaboration with several community partners including: The Community Cloth, PAIR Houston, IEDA Relief, and OCA Houston.

The leaders of The Community Cloth, PAIR Houston, IEDA Relief were present to both discuss the challenges and situations facing refugees in Houston, while the audience also presented questions to each of them; that they had written and built upon group discussions that took place between the film showings.

Altogether it was a great and powerful opener to what is shaping to be an exciting year, one that is driven to give a voice to those unheard!
