This month the Local 2 Global LLC had a great time during both a cultural event and a field trip to Chicago!
Our community decorated cards and wrote motivational messages to Myanmar refugee children who currently live in Milwaukee. Everyone had a wonderful time making these cards and talking about the asylum seeking process and the complications and hardships people face when trying to seek citizenship. Overall it was exciting to see residents not only motivating children but also themselves.
We also went to Chicago this month!! Our LLC paired with the Social Justice LLC and the Spanish LLC to take a cultural trip. We went to the National Museum of Mexican Art and were able to explore around the neighborhood and eat lunch. Then we went to the DuSable Museum of African American History. We were able to experience different cultures and identities first hand and it was an amazing experience. After we visited both museums, residents were given the opportunity to explore Downtown Chicago and experience other cultures by themselves.
We had a fun time and I can't wait to see what the Local 2 Global LLC does next!
