The Immigrant Story Gallery Opening

  • Pro Photo Supply 1112 Northwest 19th Avenue Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

Hosted by The Immigrant Story and Pro Photo Supply.  We are a nation of Immigrants.

Join us first Thursday, June 7th from 6-7pm, for light refreshments + snacks and a brief introduction into The Immigrant Story.

“The Immigrant Story” was started to address an issue that is prevalent in our country today: xenophobia. Our mission is to highlight the diversity and strength of our community, through images and stories that connect us to immigrants past and present that have made this country what it is.

By humanizing the immigration issue, learning something about the individuals whose journeys brought them to the United States, we hope to add to the empathy and understanding we have for each other.

This exhibition was curated from entries submitted for the “Our Diversity is our Strength” photo contest. These images, submitted from professional photographs, amateurs, students and community members, are a part of our ongoing efforts to create a collection of diverse immigrant stories that reflect who we are as a nation.

Visit us at theimmigrantstory.org to see the many immigrant portraits and stories we are sharing through this project and to learn more about our work.

We are grateful to the many community, photography and art organizations that have stepped forward to partner with us.

The Immigrant Story Gallery Show will run from June 7th- August 31st at Pro Photo Supply.
