Hosted by the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies

Come for an evening of cultural performances featuring music, dance, poetry and colorful costumes. The program will share the ancient cultural heritage of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen through the eyes of children and youth, and send messages of unity with others. The children who have emigrated to this country, including those fleeing the devastation of war and turmoil have brought hearts full of hope and promise. By sharing their cultures and dreams with the wider public, these children can help to build bridges of peace and understanding – and help to counter the fears and stereotypes that contribute to anti-refugee and anti-immigrant sentiment.

Tickets to Children of One World are FREE for adults and children. Seating is limited, please be sure to register in order to reserve your space.

Donations are accepted by the International Rescue Committee for their urgent mission to save Syrian refugee children, at this link: https://www.crowdrise.com/children-of-one-world/fundraiser/fund-for-the-future-of-our-children-inc or https://goo.gl/47IOOt. CCAS and FFC will not collect or manage the donation funds which go directly to IRC.
