STRANGERS INTO NEIGHBORS... 
HISPANICS IN ALAMANCE COUNTY PHOTO EXHIBIT

LUPE ( Latinos Unidos Promoviendo La Esperanza ), a non profit organization - along with other sponsors - is working hard to produce and bring STRANGERS INTO NEIGHBORS; HISPANICS IN ALAMANCE COUNTY PHOTO EXHIBIT to locations in our community and perhaps others. This public exhibition will portray Hispanics and members of the Latino community of Alamance County - Graham and Burlington - in their everyday life, capturing the wide cultural heritage they bring with them. 

We want to reveal real faces of Hispanics breaking past misconceptions and biases. 

We strongly believe that your participation will help us not only to succeed but also turn the STRANGERS INTO NEIGHBORS exhibit into an opportunity to bring awareness, love, warmth, and better understanding for this issue.

Showing Hispanics and Latino along with others in our community will suggest how we are connected and what Hispanics mean to Alamance County and the whole United States.

For any further information and details, please contact Mrs.Blanca Nienhaus at [ blancanienhaus@gmail.com ]

Supporters and Donors: Donations for this project are tax deductible. Companies, support groups, and individuals
endorsing and supporting this Photo Project will be also featured on the exhibits website and on a poster at the time of the exhibit.

We shall look forward to hearing from you. Your sponsorship and support for this exhibit is greatly appreciated. 
Please join us.
