In Our Own Words

MultCo Global has begun compiling audio interviews with immigrant and refugee leaders, service providers and residents as a way to honor the struggles and celebrate the strength of our community. We offer a platform for those rich voices that too often go unheard. You can listen to those interviews at In Our Own Words, on the Internet Archive
