Wicked Local Cambridge, October 1, 2019

The City of Cambridge’s Commission on Immigrant Rights and Citizenship will host its second Immigrant Communities Welcome event 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Oct. 12 at the Cambridge Public Library Lecture Hall and Community Room, 449 Broadway.

The welcome event will feature three films from the documentary series New Immigrant and Refugee Visions, providing unique insider perspectives of these immigrants’ integration challenges and the contributions they make to our culture, economy and social fabric in Massachusetts. The filmmakers and their subjects will engage with the audience about their experiences as immigrants and with immigration to the U.S.

A light lunch including foods from various cultural traditions will be shared.

What was emphasized during the discussion is that it is up to those that believe in the US as a nation of immigrants, to counter the lies and misinformation that is permeating the current dialogue about new immigrants and refugees in the US. It is incumbent on all of us to speak out against xenophobia and hatred toward the newest members of our communities.
