Pecha Kucha Seattle and the Seattle Public Library Present PKN SEA vol. 70: American Visionaries: Immigration. Innovation & Freedom

Immigrants are a vital part of the American story. Immigrant communities are a crucial part of our cultural and economic landscape--nationally and locally. By fostering new ideas and advocating for social justice , immigrant leadership has helped shape the vision of our civic society from labor, arts, politics and beyond. Seattle Public Library and Pecha Kucha Seattle are proud to present PKN SEA vol. 70: American Visionaries - Immigration. Innovation & Freedom, an evening of personal talks celebrating the vital contributions of immigrants as they help shape a vibrant, plural vision of America.
