What is your family’s immigration story?
The Media Center will launch a web site for immigration stories in the next few weeks. Everybody is welcome to post a story about a relative who left another country to start a new life in the U.S. The site will become a repository for hundreds of short profiles that will be easily searchable by a variety of categories such as the immigrant’s country of origin and the era in which they came. Stories can be submitted in writing or on video.
The project was funded by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation as part of their Immigrant Integration Initiative. We are looking for a few volunteers who will help us publish the stories onto the site, enter keywords, and or help us with occasional videography. If you have an interest to participate or volunteer on the proejct, contact Elliot at: Editor@MadeintoAmerica.org.
We’ll announce the launch on this blog and on the Media Center’s Facebook page.
