Migration Stories: “How We Came to Clark County”

Saturday, May 26, 2018 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Grab a snack, don a smile and get to know one another. Whether you’ve lived in Clark County all your life or arrived more recently, we invite you to come meet your neighbors, share how you and your ancestors came to the area, then let’s discuss changes that are happening all around us.

Participants will visit in facilitated small groups and come together in a larger group to explore our shared history. The event is ASL language accessible.

These conversations are part of the series, “Clark County Stories—How We Came to this Place.” 

Recognizing a growing gulf of understanding between recent arrivals and Clark County residents with deeper historical roots, WSU Vancouver professors, Sue Peabody and Donna Sinclair, in collaboration with Clark County Historical Museum and Fort Vancouver Regional Library District, began a series of community conversations to identify bearers of these stories of change, foster community dialogue and facilitate mutual understanding.
