Abraham Lincoln High School (formally The High School for New Americans) and the Institute for Education and Advocacy used this project as a community awareness and outreach program. The project was created to help immigrant and refugee students introduce themselves to their new community, to foster self-reflection and self-expression in the students, to bring the different academic departments together in a hands-on project, and to help in the healing process of the students in overcoming their recent transition and often traumatic experiences.
