Who is safe and welcome here? Join us for an evening exploring the history of welcoming and exclusion in Cambridge, from its founding to the present day. Hear from local experts and join a conversation around these urgent questions: How have immigrants been welcomed and not welcomed in Cambridge? How does the local sanctuary movement, and our status as a sanctuary city, define who we are? How can our local history help us understand what's needed now? What are key moments in the city's past highlighting contention around immigration? What's our role in creating a welcoming city and upholding a neighborly social contract? Featuring a storytelling intro by ENROOT students, sharing their experiences as newcomers.
