Share your family’s immigration story

Tenement MuseumDo you have an object story

We asked writers to share objects that meant a lot to them, their families, or their cultural heritage. You can view them all and share your story with our partner, the Tenement Museum in New York, by going here.

We want to hear your story!

The tags below are immigration stories shared in-person at the My America exhibit at the American Writers Museum. Feel free to explore the stories, including the different categories at the bottom of the page. Click the button below to tell us about your family’s immigration story. Submissions will be added to tags and posted in the categories at the bottom of the page, so come back often to see new stories from your friends and neighbors!
