Stand Against Racism
YWCA Bethlehem
Facebook Event April 24, 25 and 26

During the past several years, immigration has become a hot button in the United States. Bethlehem Pennsylvania, which is part of the Lehigh Valley, is no different. The YWCA Bethlehem will interview two women immigrants/refugees and post the interviews on Facebook. The women immigrants/refugees will be interviewed about their experiences in the USA and contributions they have made to our local community. The women have lived in the United States for different lengths of time and have come into the country during different decades, but they are definitely part of the Lehigh Valley fiber.
