I'm really fascinated by what Ms Napolitano said about the long-spanning history of Muslim immigrantion in this country. As a Jew, I know that the Jewish people have a similar story--coming to Providence, Savannah, New York before the US had even declared independence. And Muslims and Jews are two of the groups facing the most hate and violence every day here in the US.
Jaisang Sun

Thanks for sharing your thought, Juneau!

I would love to challenge everyone in America to do one thing: Extend a helping hand to someone unlike yourself. Someone of a different race, religion, who speaks a different language. It’s easy for us to focus on those who we believe are the most like us. It makes us richer to help those who are not. (Or at least not in those superficial ways. In reality, we are all alike: We all want a safe place to live where our children can do better than we did.) Time spent with folks unlike ourselves will reveal those similarities and bring us closer.

I tuned in late but am always interested in this topic and always happy to learn about ways to become more helpful and collaborative. Great discussion and helpful perspectives!
Iván Barragan
01:01:49
I think it's very important to highlight immigrant success stories instead of just highlighting the very real dire conditions some find themselves in
Mark Poulterer
01:02:04
For the Panel, especially the journalists, how do we get our stories out there? I am a high school teacher and I write stories about my students regularly. I have shared them with my staff and I have always gotten positive responses. These young people are so resilient and their stories can truly change the way some people see them.
Jo Napolitano

YEs, Ivan! YES!
Jo Napolitano

Mark, what is your local news org?
Jo Napolitano
01:02:41
Newspaper? TV station? Cable news? Can you reach out to them?

Questions for our panelists?
Sheila Green
01:03:44
The increasing interest in genealogy connects American-born individuals with their families’ immigrant past, which by extension, makes people more understanding of and connects to the immigrant experience even though it may be outside their own experience.

This is a tangential resource, relevant to the question of chidden of immigrant parents, that is scaffolded for classroom use with English Learners:NPR audio report provided for multilingual learner classroom use on American Children, Immigrant Parents (full speed or slowed speed; transcript and other supporting materials, provided listening comprehension quiz and assignment-maker; free login to access) https://listenwise.com/lessons/157-american-children-immigrant-parents#
isabel schroeder
01:07:31
I'm wondering about our responsibility to question language. Beyond "foreign" which immediately turn people into "others": ESL for example. So many immigrants, refugees, asylees speak a couple of languages before learning Eng and the system assumes Eng is their second language only
Carol Story
01:08:05
yes!! JO!!!
Alison Noyes
01:08:23
There is a shift to using the term ‘Multilingual Learners’ to emphasize the knowledge “ESL” students already have.
Juneau Samuel
01:09:12
I hear people using ELL rather than ESL, but this is such a good point; those terms aren't exactly interchangeable.
Anne Stevens

ESOL
Cathy Maher
01:09:39
Also relying on community leaders to advocate for parents/students. Empowering the immigrant population to express their civil rights.
Pat Branstad
01:09:57
In an effort to help us get to know our neighbors better, and to build bridges between different cultural groups in our small town, our community group gathered "immigration stories" and compiled a book "Your Story, My Story, Our Story" … about half of the accounts were from either new immigrants or first generation residents in this country (primarily Latinx), the other half were from 2nd-4th generation descendants of immigrants (primarily northern European). We want to gather more stories...what suggestions/guidance do you have for "regular people" wanting to invite and share stories?
isabel schroeder
01:10:06
Indeed, but there's a widespread tendency to minimize skills in the way the even the field uses language
Rebecca Sosa
01:10:29
such great points, so much potential left on the table. Schools should be LEVERAGING native Spanish and French speakers for example to have language exchange learning buddies who are studying Spanish and French in school and exchange English conversation.
Pricila Rivas
01:10:33
We need to tell the stories of the silent voices every one! Lets talk about the other side of the coin as well, deportation family separation due to deportation, the effects on the community and get folks stories out so everyone can see all the effects of the system
DESIREE LALBEHARIE-JOSIAS
01:10:35
I would like to offer that in addition to all that is being shared that sharing stories of RESILIENCE and triumph over adversity is important to share with immigrant children to nurture their own resilience and to keep them inspired as it takes a lot of effort to tune out the noise of discrimination that they and their families experience
Jo Napolitano
01:10:47
Pat! What amazing project!!!!!
Jo Napolitano
01:11:07
Have you gotten any local media coverage in what you are doing?
Rebecca Sosa
01:11:20
Pat can you share a link to that work? sounds great
Jo Napolitano
01:11:30
Can you pair up with artists/photographers and collect images to go with this story and perhaps approach a local museum to display?
Allyson Erick
01:11:33
I actually taught in Spanish (middle school) andalso esl. In East Oakland (over twenty years ago) One of the boys objected because “my parents can’t read and they don’t speak Spanish. (They spoke Mayan)Their English tests were often better than the average “Ebonics” speakers at the school.

Check out the Refugee Dream Center in Providence, RI. I agree, as there can be pain associated with someone’s story, it is important we develop trusting relationships first so they feel comfortable telling their stories, in their own ways. I know it is taking decades to get stories from my mom’s earlier days in Palestine. Thank you for this opportunity.
