      On Common Ground, a public conversation about immigration, identity, and how we define community

      Lexington Community Radio invites you to On Common Ground, presented with the support of Blue Grass Community Foundation. On Tuesday, September 17 at 7PM, hundreds of community-minded citizens will come together at the Kentucky Theater for a real, honest conversation about immigration and our community's identity. This electrifying evening will include live musical performances, interactive multi-media presentations, plus insights and personal stories from some of Lexington's most respected experts on immigration. The guest of honor is a leading voice for the human rights of immigrants, Jose Antonio Vargas. He is the Pulitzer Prize-winning, Emmy-nominated author of Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen. Fast-paced and interactive, the evening's program will dispel destructive myths about immigrants and clarify misconceptions about the immigration process.

      That's just the beginning! Guests will be given tools and guidelines for continuing the conversation and for getting involved. Post-event gatherings will encourage citizens to connect and build lasting relationships. Right now, with divisive and polarizing battles around immigration playing out on the national stage, we have a unique opportunity to come together respectfully, as friends and neighbors On Common Ground.

      Seating is limited. Reserve your spot today at: lexingtoncommunityradio.org/reservation
