Experience immigrant stories of yesterday and today on Stories From The Stage, an onstage performance series that showcases the power of everyday people sharing real stories in front of a live audience. In this episode, titled “Suitcase Stories Part 2,” Szifra was honored to join two other dynamic story tellers, Nano Raies and Abhishek Shah, for an evening of laughter, confession, and emotion.  This episode first aired on public television in January 2018.

“Suitcase Stories,” a traveling live performance series and social media campaign, was launched in March 2017 by Cheryl Hamilton, co-director of Massmouth and director of partner engagement at the International Institute of New England, a refugee resettlement agency. Hamilton created the series to counter negative national coverage about immigrants and refugees.

“Suitcase Stories” is produced in partnership with Massmouth and the International Institute of New England.
