Removing Barriers: Build a Bear Event

We often judge people based on their single story - a glimpse into their lives that they share with us. We never think about who they are and what they have done outside of that single story. This event will serve as a way to discover other stories and become aware of the dangers of the single story. We will hear each other and build our stories while building a stuffed animal of your choice.
