Giving Voice is an annual event that highlights ILI’s free English classes for immigrants and refugees in western Massachusetts, dedicated to helping the students improve their English skills for work, college, and their daily lives.
Giving Voice 2021 will differ from past years in many ways while still honoring the history and intent of the event. The audience will view videos featuring immigrant and refugee students—days in their lives, stories about their experience at ILI, and much more. In addition to student performances, Rachael Price, lead singer of Lake Street Dive, will sing. Other video clips will feature ILI teachers and board members, local supporters, public figures, and presentation of the Andrea Raphael Award to one of the students.
