Immigrant Voices

Ongoing

There are over 11 million people in the United States without proper documentation. Over 2 million are in California alone.

They are our neighbors, our friends, our co-workers. They are woven into the fabric of our society, a rich tapestry. They are two aisles over in the grocery store buying produce for their family, produce picked by undocumented farm workers. They are on a construction crew two houses down on your street. They have hopes and dreams, struggles and fears just as you do. Immigrant Voices is a new program facilitated by James Floss that brings their stories into your home, building a bridge between cultures.

Real names are not used. Some stories will be narrated by proxy vocal talent. The stories will air periodically as they come in.

If you are undocumented and want to tell your story, email voces@khsu.org.
