Forty people braved a snowstorm on Monday, February 5, to attend Borderless’ night of immigrant stories at the Oak Park Public Library. We teamed up with the Chicago chapter of Veterans for American Ideals to help produce the event and received support from ICNA Relief, the Syrian Community Network, and StoryCorps. The amazing Don Hall — former host of The Moth in Chicago — served as the night’s MC.
