Building Community.
One way that MAVIN Foundation builds healthy communities is by hosting or sponsoring frequent events and activities. Here are photo albums containing hundreds of photos from some of our many events celebrating mixed heritage people and families. Sign up as a MAVIN member and you'll receive invitations and announcements to future events. We hope to see you soon!
