We Are Not The Others’ is rooted on the findings of a two-year research project, conducted with women immigrant to Hamilton by Dr. Carranza from The School of Social Work at McMaster University & funded by the Hamilton Community Foundation. “We Are Not The Others” is a creative collaboration between Dr. Carranza and playwright Izad Etemadi. It uses the women’s real expressions to describe their experiences of immigration, trauma, losses, resiliency and hope for a better life in Canada.

“Immigration has been a part of the history of humanity. We need to embrace it rather than fear it.” – Dr. M. Carranza
