Around The World In One Fun Day

Around The World In One Fun Day was an amazing success! It was incredible to see so many of our rich diverse cultural groups come together to make this event occur.

“This was a very enlightening and informative event, and very important considering our current cultural climate here in the US.  I think this falls on every single person to learn more about other cultures and the issues they are facing.  Dr Reyes and Jordan Chaney were fabulous, I could listen to them every day!”
