For centuries, America has beckoned to immigrants the world over. With courage and determination they have traveled thousands of miles to rejoin loved ones, for economic opportunity, or simply to know freedom. As a nation of immigrants, America has benefited from an infusion of talents and skills that are the foundations of many rich traditions. In the civic, economic, and artistic arenas, yesterday's newcomer is tomorrow's pioneer in a continuing process that defines us to this day. The preservation and presentation of the immigrant experience in the United States is a central commitment of the New Americans Museum's mission. We are dedicated to insuring that individual stories are safeguarded in the Family Histories Essays and Oral and Visual Histories archives as enduring testaments to our immigrant roots as a culture and a nation.

Mission: A catalyst for the celebration of America's past and promise, the Museum provides inspiring educational and cultural programs to honor our diverse immigrant experiences.

These individuals were recognized for their ability to take action in pursuit of long-term positive social change, inspire and engage others, demonstrate efforts to sustain their work through developing strategies for institutional and community commitment, and exhibit motivation and potential for effective long-term civic engagement.

Can Dr. Eger's talk be recorded so that those of us who were too slow to respond may watch it?
I am having issues with registering for the event on Eventbrite, it will not complete the transaction.
Dear New Americans Museum Community - UC San Diego will be presenting a screening of an award-winning new documentary film, THE ITO SISTERS: AN AMERICAN STORY, on Friday, February 8, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. in the Price Center Theater. THE ITO SISTERS explores the early Japanese American experience and draws parallels between the Anti-Japanese Movement in the first half of the 20th century and today's anti-immigrant political climate. The UCSD screening event, which includes a Q&A with director Antonia Grace Glenn and scholar Evelyn Nakano Glenn, is free and open to all. For more information about the film, please visit: www.itosisters.com.
