UMass - Building Bridges: Our Immigrant Voices

"Our Immigrant Voices” launched in spring 2017 as part of Building Bridges, a public art and engagement campus initiative designed to invite people with different personal backgrounds— across race, religion, class, immigration status, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability and nationality—to connect and strengthen community.  

The current installation is product of the Our Immigrant Voices 11-week course for employees that took place in the spring of 2018, featuring powerful quotes by participants about their experiences as immigrants on campus and in the larger community. Employees shared sentiments such as, “I want you to see me as you see yourself. I want you to give me the same treatment that you want given to you. I want you to respect me and accept my differences. As you want to be accepted and respected.”
