Visit a museum! Thirteen museums around the country have launched a program that connects the current challenges facing those seeking immigration reform with people throughout history who have engaged in similar struggles.
The program is called "Face to Face: Immigration Then and Now." These exhibits will promote civil dialogues on immigration, offering opportunities to hear personal stories of immigrants, learn about deportation, study labor organizing, and more. The program's director, Liz Sevcenko, is quoted as saying that, with these exhibits, "people are able to look at this issue in a much more informed and measured way."
The participating museums are members of the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience.
