Free Food For Thought

ffft-logo-01Free Food For Thought is a dialogue series that encourages building a community that values diversity. Interested participants exchange viewpoints on selected topics, resulting in a greater awareness about issues and experiences across social and personal identities. Learning from one another through facilitated respectful discussion helps us value the contributions of our peers. In exchange for opinions, we provide Free Food.

Through the Golden Door:
Immigration Experiences

Immigration is at the forefront of social justice movements on college campuses, particularly in the wake of Alabama’s own HB56 legislation, one of the harshest immigration policies in the nation.
The “Through the Golden Door: Immigration Experiences” series aims to bring to light the unique voices andmexperiences of our campus community on a topic which is so often reduced to its politics.
Free Food for Thought’s Spring 2014 series will synthesize the individual, cultural and social forces at play when we discuss immigration, and invite students to share and expand their experiences.
