This community event will feature the new documentary film about Denver's own Minoru Yasui and his fight for social justice surrounding the Japanese American internment.
We will also honor Colorado Representative Joe Salazar and community activist Nadeen Ibrahim with the 2nd Annual Sandpiper Awards. This award recognizes those who have taken a courageous stand for the protection of civil rights and human rights in the Colorado community. Both Nadeen and Representative Salazar exemplify what it means to 'walk the walk' in their tireless work on behalf of refugee and immigrant communities.
Finally, we will close our celebration with a "Taste of the World" luncheon in the belief that we know one another better when we break bread together!
All proceeds will go to Project Worthmore and their fantastic work with and for the refugee communities of Metro Denver.
