Join the International Institute of New England and honor the contributions of refugees and immigrants through the timeless art of live storytelling. Learn how the Institute welcomes and supports newcomers as they rebuild their lives and strengthen local communities.

Suitcase Stories is a traveling live performance series and online social media campaign that features foreign and U.S.- born residents sharing refugee and immigrant stories throughout Greater Boston and Lowell, Massachusetts, and Manchester, New Hampshire.

All funds support International Institute of New England programming including refugee resettlement, English language instruction, workforce training, and citizenship services.

Hosted by IINE's Regional Resettle Together Network in partnership with Massmouth and TripAdvisor.
