Unapologetic Migration: Immigrant, Refugee, & Native People Stories

  • Northeastern Illinois University 5500 Saint Louis Avenue Chicago, IL 60625 (map)

ATTENTION all poets, storytellers, orators, writing wizards, and those who are brave enough to put a pen to a paper. ChiMexLA and APCDIA are hosting an evening of storytelling to bring attention to those shaped and influenced by immigration, colonization, and migration. With co-hosts Rebel Poetry Club and URO NEIU, the event also seeks to honor the Indigenous and Native people who have sovereignty over the U.S. land many immigrants escape to for refuge and a better life. Join us in taking part in an evening where you can listen to immigration, refugee, and Native experiences of families and ancestors. We also will welcome Native & Indigenous stories as well. They will share their experiences through spoken word, poetry, short stories or any other form of oratory medium that speaks to them. We are also accepting visual art that may be themed under immigration, migration, colonization, and the refugee experience that will be displayed during the day of the event. If you are interested in submitting an art piece or performing a piece during this annual event, please email or use this link to sign up to be part of the program. Please get your FREE tickets to the event through Eventbrite. Feel free to share this event!
