“Building a Nation of Neighbors” is an exciting new video module set that will help you build greater understanding between long-time residents and immigrants in your community.  The module, which was developed by Active Voice in association with BeCause Foundation, was adapted from the documentary Welcome to Shelbyville, produced and directed by Kim A. Snyder.

“Building a Nation of Neighbors” equips individuals and organizations with story-based tools to better understand and use the Welcoming model that is featured in Welcome to Shelbyville. This model for community building was designed by WelcomingTennessee (a program of TIRRC) and is being replicated nationwide by Welcoming America.
