A webinar series is highlighting the shared and disparate experiences of local migrant communities.  

Breaking Bread in McLean County is a 10-part program series exploring stories of migration, immigration, adaptation, assimilation, appropriation, preservation, contribution, and sustentation in McLean County. Seeking to disrupt the historical chronology, the series looks to promote a deeper understanding of the ways McLean County has traditionally treated its migrant communities.
