Description

Sociologist, Dr. Lisa Porter received a grant from the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, which helped, support her Journeying Together Project. She worked with officials from the Harrisonburg City Schools, Dual Immersion parents at Keister Elementary, JMU faculty, and leaders from various nonprofit organizations, on a five week "intercultural communication seminar" that created a space where the socio-economic barriers between families within the DI program, which at the time reflected the stratification seen within the community-at-large, could be reduced.
