Write Our World has developed an exhibit of gorgeous bilingual ebooks created by Crawford Elementary School refugee students and their families from Somalia, Nepal and Burma on exhibit at the Aurora History Museum. Their books document their native cultures and the experience of coming to the US as refugees. This exhibit is a part of the annual celebration, GlobalFest that celebrates Aurora’s unique cultural diversity.
The www.globalminded.org movement is about access, equity, and opportunity for First-Generation-to-College and underserved populations, those who work with them, and those who want to hire them. GlobalMindED is the only professionally run conference in the U.S. that brings together First Gen students with leaders from the education, business, policy, and nonprofit sectors. Thought leaders from diverse backgrounds and industries support educational innovators who are setting a new standard for inclusive excellence at a time of national polarization, fragmentation, and digital divide.
