Almost Home/Casi Llegando a Casa Information:

Almost Home/Casi Llegando a Casa aims to strengthen community connections in Jackson Heights, Elmhurst, and Corona, Queens, through public storytelling programs, participatory art installations, and video that explore themes of home, vulnerability, resilience, and resistance. This project highlights powerful true stories of the challenges our communities face, and the struggles and inspiring victories that local organizers have won for housing justice and immigrants’ human rights.

Almost Home/Casi Llegando a Casa was developed by Five Boro Story Project’s Bridget Bartolini, Priscilla Stadler, and Milton X. Trujillo, in collaboration with Queens Neighborhoods United, a grassroots organization focusing on three social justice issues crucial for our local community: immigration, gentrification, and policing.

This project is generously supported by More Art, Citizens Committee for New York City, and the Puffin Foundation.
