On Saturday, March 8th,  join Burlington College in a community-wide celebration of International Women’s Day.  This event will reflect our city's diversity through the shared stories of immigrant and refugee women about their journeys from Africa, Europe, India, Asia, Nepal and the Arab world.  Recipes from around the world will be available for sampling.

This past weekend, Fatuma Bulle, a Burlington College student working on her BA in International Relations and Diplomacy, was featured in the Saturday edition of the Burlington Free Press talking about this event and her own journey from Somalia to Vermont.  Bulle is one of several organizing the event, including Sandy Baird, Burlington College’s chair of legal and justice studies, as well as our Institute for Civic Engagement.
