We invite you to join The Center for Contemporary Arab Studies at Georgetown University and Fund for the Future of Our Children in a cultural performance featuring music, dance, poetry and colorful costumes. The program will share the ancient cultural heritage of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen through the eyes of children and youth, and send messages of unity with others. The children who have emigrated to this country, including those fleeing the devastation of war and turmoil have brought hearts full of hope and promise. By sharing their cultures and dreams with the wider public, these children can help to build bridges of peace and understanding – and help to counter the fears and stereotypes that contribute to anti-refugee and anti-immigrant sentiment.
