IHRC's Immigrant Stories Website Launch

Immigrant Stories Website Launch
Thursday, March 9, 2017
120 Elmer L. Andersen Library
You’ve helped us make history! (Literally!)
You helped us build Immigrant Stories! The collection now has over 215 stories representing 50 different ethnic groups. Immigrant Stories have been screened across the country, exhibited in museums, and featured in documentaries, books, and multiple news stories.
There has never been a more important time to tell our immigrant stories - and we’re just getting started! Please help us celebrate the launch of the Immigrant Stories website on March 9, 2017! The website makes creating a story easier than ever. It guides users through the process of making their own video and includes free access to video editing software.

We also have free curricula so that you can teach others to create their own stories in the classroom and in public programs.

4:00-5:00: Educator Open House: Discover how to teach with Immigrant Stories
5:00-6:00: Immigrant Stories Screening
