City Lore is pleased to be sponsoring Becoming American: A Documentary Film and Discussion Series on Our Immigration Experience, a six-week public program designed to encourage an informed and open discussion of today’s immigration issues in the context of the nation's rich immigration history.

In addition, each of the thirty-two nonprofit organizations selected to implement Becoming American will receive a cash award of $1,300 for project expenses.
