UMBC Immigrant Recognition Day, October 7th
Join us to celebrate UMBC's diverse immigrant culture!
Join us for a day of celebration of our
UMBC Immigrant Recognition Day
Let’s come together as a community to recognize the contributions immigrants make every day to UMBC and our nation.
Students, Staff, Faculty, Service Workers, Administrators: Join us on Monday, October 7 for a day-long celebration in the Commons Quad.
Come when you can!
Regardless of where we were born, how we look or the language we speak, let’s pledge support to a strong, inclusive, safe UMBC for all.
We will share the many ways immigrants contribute to UMBC (and the U.S.).
- Wear red to identify as part of (or in solidarity with) our community of immigrants.
- Bring quotes, art, photos, texts—by immigrants or celebrating immigration—to display on our celebration wall.
Sign up for a 15-minute time slot to read—a poem, short story or excerpt by your favorite immigrant author; sing; play an instrument; perform—spoken word, monologue, play; or to share your own immigration stories. Additional creative celebratory ideas are welcome too!
- Use #UMBCimmigrants to document and celebrate immigrants’ contributions to our community.
- Participate, celebrate, and experience the beauty of our immigrant communities at UMBC by showing up, bringing your classes, inviting your friends.
Come one, come all. Wear red!
October 7, 2019, Commons Quad, 10am-5pm
