Building Bridges

Building Bridges includes photographs and interviews with people who have come to the United States as immigrants or refugees from all over the world. The exhibit seeks to challenge damaging myths and stereotypes about immigrants and refugees as a way to prevent bullying and hatred towards this marginalized group of people.

“Over the course of this past year, we displayed four different exhibits: Of Many Colors, Road to Freedom, Love Makes a Family, and Pioneering Voices. We appreciated the rich and frank conversations about race, family, and LGBTQ issues—the exhibits provided a foundation upon which meaningful and impactful conversations could take place. We recommend working with  Family Diversity Projects to any school looking to broaden student awareness” – Gail Kipper, Principal, Farragut Middle School, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY
