Free + open to the public; no reservations required
Join us for the opening of Refuge or Refusal: Turning Points in U.S. Immigration History, the newest exhibition from the Museum of History and Holocaust Education.
Five key moments emerge as turning points in U.S. immigration policy: 1790, 1882, 1924, 1948, and 1965. This exhibit explores the impact of these turning points and the factors that influenced them, from global conflicts and economic conditions to cultural trends and social aspirations.
The reception will feature an international heritage potluck, a moderated panel, and networking space for attendees to engage with community partners. Attendees are welcome (but not required) to contribute a dish of their own.
