Suitcase Stories Live logoJune is Refugee Awareness month. Honor the contributions of refugees and immigrants throughout the region through the timeless art of live storytelling. Local foreign and U.S.-born residents will perform first-person stories on themes of refugee resettlement and immigrant integration. The M.C. is Brian O'Donovan (WBGH Celtic Sojourn), and two of the storytellers are from Needham.

All funds support International Institute of New England (IINE) programming including refugee resettlement, English language education, workforce training, citizenship services, and more.

Hosted in partnership with Massmouth and TripAdvisor, and IINE's Resettle Together West Suburban Consortium (which includes LWV-Needham).
