Everyone has a migration story! Join us at the beautiful and historic South Shore Cultural Center for a fun day highlighting the Monarch butterfly and its similarities to the migration of Latinx and African American communities! You'll also learn how you can help the Monarch butterfly – an important pollinator and the state insect of Illinois.

We are thrilled to collaborate with Faith in Place, the South Shore Park Advisory Council, Sacred Keepers, the U.S. Forest Service, The Field Museum, and other partners to bring you a day full of games, educational exhibits, music,  entertainment, storytelling, and fun. 

The event is free and families are encouraged! Register here.
