Immigrants and the Sanctuary City: Then & Now

On the day after the deadline for the expiration of DACA, we invite you to join historians, activists, and experts including Dr. Mae Ngai, Professor of Asian American Studies and History at Columbia University; immigration rights activist and leader Ravi Ragbir; activist leader Ana Maria Archila of the Center for Popular Democracy; and Bitta Mostofi, Acting Commissioner of the New York City Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs, to contextualize the current climate for immigrants in New York against the city’s historic identity as the nation’s melting pot. This event will be moderated by WNYC reporter Matt Katz. The program accompanies an ongoing exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York called Activist New York.
