In the Windows: Finding the Sunny Side
June 25, 2021 to August 30, 2021
This photography showcase highlights five young refugee clients from InterFaith Works. InterFaith Works asked these girls what they wanted the community to see through their eyes. Each girl came back with a different story. Please join us and see our community through their eyes.
Thank you to Ra-Lin for printing this exhibition!
About InterFaith Works
InterFaith Works was founded in 1976 to build bridges of understanding among people of different religions and across racial divides. In the U.S. climate of concern for interracial understanding during the decades of civil rights activity, InterFaith Works aligned to fulfill this important function. The need for this work heightened after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and continues to serve as a vehicle to address hate towards those who are considered “different.”
Over the years, the agency added social service programs to address the needs of people who are vulnerable, low-income, targets of oppression, and refugees who arrive through the federal refugee resettlement programs, fleeing war, political repression, and famine. Programs to address the needs of frail elderly, of those in prisons, hospitals, and nursing homes, and programs to address hunger and housing have been a part of InterFaith Works. In the coming decade, the core of the agency’s work will focus on creating dialogue on community issues and promote the racial and religious diversity of our community.
