Borderless Stories Exhibit

Borderless Stories Exhibit

The traveling exhibit Borderless Stories is now at the OSU Valley Library!

Borderless Stories shares the lives of immigrants in Rural Oregon. The exhibit is coordinated by the Rural Organizing Project (ROP) with the Immigrant Family Advocates (IFA) in Deschutes County.

Borderless Stories documents the complex human stories behind the polarizing issue of what to do about immigration in our country. Last year Sue Nell Philips and Mimi Graves of IFA conducted interviews with 8 families touched by the experience of immigration. The stories are deeply personal, speaking to the underlying political realties in a way that is intimate and real.”
