Race and Immigration
The Race and Immigration issue area is committed to help Warren Wilson students toward understanding the concepts and effects of racial injustice and immigration within local, national and global realms. Working closely with both our community partners and the Warren Wilson community, this issue area advocates for a strong and diverse community rooted in respect and understanding of each other culture, ethnicity, and experiences. MANOS (Mentoring and Nuturing On Site), which is a program within the Emma Family Resource Center, focuses on mentoring and supporting Asheville's Latino youth at Emma Elementary School. Building Bridges is a multiracial and intergenerational weekly diagolue that seeks to critical examine and present instititutionalized discrimination and racism within the U.S.A to present avenues to encourage honest, yet challenging dialogue to help undo the ignorance that can uprise from this discrimination and ultimately heal the wounds that racism has created.
