Immigrants in Iowa: Our Story
Explore the history of Iowa, from early immigrants from places like Ireland and Germany, to our newest immigrants. While the countries of origin may be different, there are strong commonalities in many of the root causes of migration and the stories of new immigrants as they adapt to a new culture and country. This is OUR story. Panelists will include Sol Varisco of Iowa Justice for Our Neighbors, Sonia Reyes-Snyder of the Iowa Division of Latino Affairs, John-Paul Chaisson-Cárdenas, State 4-H Youth Development Program Leader, Jon Nuñez of Iowa Valley’s Education and Training Center in Marshalltown, and Karina Hernandez, Every Child Ready to Read Coordinator at MICA and school board member for the Marshalltown School District. This program is free; light refreshments will be served.
Sponsored by Immigrant Allies of Marshalltown, Iowa JFON, and the Iowa Division for Latino Affairs.
