In these hard times, I was stirred with hope after reading the June 26 issue of The Newsleaders. Both Opinion columns by Mike Knaak and Dennis Dalman should go viral. I am proud of you both for calling us to take action too…separate fact from fiction….keep expressing our collective outrage.

I also appreciated your giving space for Melissa Dick’s article in Refugee/immigrant news. As a member of Cultural Bridges and the point person for this column, I urge all community members to read it. It is meant for all of us, not just the refugee population. It is one of the best ways to get to know each other, especially now with social distancing. 

We have some interesting columns planned for future issues, so don’t miss out! We are always looking for timely topics  that will increase understanding and appreciation for our refugee/immigrant neighbors, so if you have any suggestions or would be willing to write something, or if you are interested in becoming  a member of Cultural Bridges, let us know. My number is always at the end of the column.
