On Tuesday, May 16th, DAMS 7th grade students had the opportunity to learn about immigration and diversity from Iman Alrashid and Chadi Alhaj Kadour, parents of three students in the district.
Iman and Chadi immigrated from Syria in 2012 and have lived in Wisconsin since their arrival. They shared with students information about the lengthy process of immigrating to the US, the several instances of discrimination they have experienced, and the importance of withholding judgment of others. Iman’s and Chadi’s main message centered around the common humanity we all share and the need to make the world a better place by respecting people from all races, languages, and nations.
