Breaking Bread, Building Bridges

For many newcomers our holidays and the traditions that surround them are new. We invite you to host a meal, inviting your immigrant and refugee neighbors to “break bread” with you, and discuss how current immigration policies are impacting their lives. We hope that this initial meal will be the first of many meals shared together as you seek to build relationships with immigrants and refugees in your communities.

Check out our Breaking Bread, Building Bridges Toolkit.
