Sit down at our global, decentralized table alongside community members gathered in Nogales, Sonora for a meal, a film premiere, and conversation about cultivating belonging in our own homes and across borders and cultures.
Together we will:
- Share in meaningful conversation with people on their migration journey, world-renowned architect Ronald Rael, and Alight collaborators.
- Cook a recipe shared from the migrant community, co-hosted by Chef Charles Michel, activist, food educator, innovator, and culinary artist.
- View the world premiere screening of the short film, “Pedacito de la Tierra”, inspired by the people and places at the heart of this initiative.
