In November 2017, English In Action—in collaboration with Writ Large and The Temporary—held a live storytelling event called Immigrant Voices. English In Action—a nonprofit located in the Roaring Fork Valley of western Colorado—helps immigrants learn English and brings community members together across cultural divides. Bernadina Bañuelos was born in Zacatecas, Mexico, and she grew up with 11 brothers and sisters. Instead of going to school, her education came from working alongside her father on their farm.
