Stranger to Neighbor Events
If we are to become a model interfaith, multicultural, and immigrant friendly city we must begin with each of us stepping outside our comfort zones – building relationships across lines of culture and faith, turning strangers into neighbors.
Stranger to Neighbor Dialogues provide bi-monthly opportunities for Greensboro’s current residents to eat, learn from, and share stories with their immigrant and refugee neighbors. Each dialogue focuses on the gifts of one particular religious or cultural group through the arts and community leader presentations, followed by small group dialogue and large group reflections. Recent dialogues have featured our diverse Southeast Asian, Muslim, Latino, West and Central African, LGBTQ, Middle Eastern, and Sikh communities in the Piedmont Triad.
Join us for our next S2N event, FaithAction’s Annual Multicultural Thanksgiving on Monday, November 14th from 6-8pm at the Mullin Life Center of First Presbyterian Church (706 N. Greene Street – directly across from FaithAction). Join hundreds of your diverse neighbors for a special evening of food, stories, and performances from around the world. This wonderful event is free, but participants must bring a dish to share from his/her culture or ancestry, and a canned food or diaper donation for FaithAction’s pantry.
