In recognition of Immigrant Heritage Week, which was established by New York City Mayor Bloomberg in 2004 and runs from April 17-24, we have compiled Not In Our School/Not In Our Town videos centered around immigration. Whether they are students hosting a lunch-time demonstration, a policy-maker reflecting on his own history, or a group of librarians providing services for immigrants in their community--the people in the following videos share their own unique stories of how their actions have led to vital conversations about immigration in their own communities.

NY Screenings: The Office of Immigrant Affairs has organized six screenings around the city of Light in the Darkness for Immigrant Heritage Week. At left, you will find the flyer for Saturday's screening at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, with a Q&A with NIOT executive producer Patrice O'Neill.
