The YWCA of Northeast Indiana hosts monthly Diversity Dialogues. Earlier this month, the organization focused on the Burmese culture and how to help refugees assimilate to U.S. culture. 

Nicole King has lived in Fort Wayne for 20 years. She attended the discussion because she wants to be a better friend. 

“This is my friend Ms. Paw and she and I are friends in spirit and we are looking to be friends verbally,” said King.
