KAMA DC is a volunteer-run non-profit organization which creates a platform for immigrants in the greater Washington DC area to share their skills and stories.

We are looking for a volunteer to join our storytelling team to conceptualize and organize our immigrant-led storytelling nights, panel discussions, and film screenings. The storytelling team also creates our podcast and runs the Immigrants of the DMV Instagram initiative (@immigrantsoftheDMV).

KAMA DC's core group is made up of 20 volunteers who meet once a week on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm. At the moment we are only organizing virtual events and have meetings online, but we hope to begin in-person events again soon.

For those who are interested, please register your interest by filling out this short survey: https://forms.gle/BsPudDWZGymvcNkT9.

Mission Statement

KAMA DC aims to build community through immigrant-led cultural experiences.

Description

KAMA DC is a grassroots organization in Washington DC which provides a platform for immigrants in the DMV area to share their skills and stories.

KAMA DC is run entirely by volunteers who are passionate about building ties, facilitating cultural exchanges, and starting conversations. We highlight the skills and stories that immigrants bring to our community by hosting skills based workshops, cooking classes, storytelling nights, film screenings, and more.

KAMA DC volunteers began to meet in 2016 and we held our first class in December 2016. We gained official 501(c) non-profit status in 2018.

The idea is simple: by allowing people to learn from each other, KAMA DC builds constructive contact between groups who rarely interact. We facilitate dialogue, mutual understanding, and empower instructors and course participants to build positive community relationships.
