Based on the values of MIFA’s founders and the issues addressed by its programs, Our City, Our Story is an event designed to inspire, foster unity, and forge community conversation. The funds raised through sponsorships and ticket sales will support MIFA’s critical programs.
Our 2020 event attracted more than 500 attendees to the virtual presentation and Q&A session with Dr. Matthew Desmond, author of Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. This year’s virtual event continues to eliminate barriers to in-person event attendance, and we hope to engage a comparable audience.
MIFA is honored to host acclaimed authors Kiese Laymon (Heavy) and Elizabeth Gilbert (City of Girls and Eat, Pray, Love). Kiese and Elizabeth will discuss their books and look at how we can heal, come together, and move forward in this pandemic period.
There are many different options to pick from: Presenting Sponsor, Hope Sponsor, Stability Sponsor, Interfaith Sponsor, and Virtual Host.
