KAMA DC

Immigrants of the DMV was launched to share experiences and stories of those who have immigrated and built community across the DMV. This project aims to contribute to a more nuanced and less stereotyped narrative on immigration by focusing on personal, everyday stories. One day each week, a different person will 'takeover’ the @immigrantsofthedmv Instagram account, using photos and videos to share their story and day.

We’re looking for people living in DC, Maryland, or Virginia who have immigrated to the United States and are both interested in and comfortable with sharing their story on an internet platform to participate.

Sign up below and we'll reach out to schedule a day that works for you!

About KAMA DC

Location:

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.
