Challenging Anti-Immigrant Bias with History

For Educators

July 21, 2021

Moderator: Adam Strom, Director, Re-imagining Migration

Presenters: Erika Lee, Regents Professor, Distinguished McKnight University Professor, Rudolph J. Vecoli Chair in Immigration History and Director of the Immigration History Research Center, University of Minnesota

This webinar examines anti-immigrant bias past and present. In our current climate, voices that were once on the fringe have become mainstream in our political discourse. As educators, we know that immigrant children and their citizen peers internalize and act upon the messages they take in. What do all of us need to know about our collective past to understand and respond to anti-immigrant bias today?
