We have been working hard to past few days to get our project started in New Jersey. We submitted the project to the Colby Institutional Review Board and they approved our proposed research and methodology. On Saturday we went to El Centro to reach out to the community and make sure all of our contacts were in place. We ended up leading a book club and it was good practice to dust off our Spanish in preparation for our interviews. After reading, we set up two interviews with two Guatemalan brothers.
We are currently in the process of reaching out to the rest of the migrant community through El Centro Hispanoamericano for interviews and other connections to help us with our research. Greg called fourteen Guatemalan migrants today and set up five more interviews. These interviews will be conducted over the next few weeks and we are very excited to get started! Tomorrow we are going to help out with distributing food from the emergency food pantry at el Centro and use that as a time to further our connection with the community and El Centro. We hope to bring our own food and beverages and receive a few more contacts and interviews before the start of the food pantry. We are looking forward to the next few weeks and are excited about how much we are going to learn.
