New Expression has been loving the recent heat wave in Atlanta! Our NXP youth in Clarkston got a break from the cold weather for some playtime outside doing sports, dance, and art with new friends. It was a great way to start off the new year!

Here is how Something New is making the world a better place!
We recently teamed up with Lutheran Services of Georgia (LSG) to celebrate New Americans living in Georgia. Students from a variety of backgrounds, both newcomers and long-time Georgia residents, worked to prepare a message about how we are better together. We traveled to the Georgia State Capital for a day of advocacy and (of course) dancing! Then to finish off the celebration, we witnessed a naturalization ceremony for immigrants from all over the world.
The students met previously at LSG Kid’s Club and we are so excited to see many new friendships continue. LSG serves over 1500 refugees every year providing resettlement, employment and other services. Click Here to find out more about their incredible mission.
