The goal of the grant was to show UIUC students a broader picture of immigration patterns to the US and to Champaign-Urbana. Too often, the discourse on immigration in the country centers solely on movements northward from Mexico, Central America and South America to the US. Instead, we are lucky to have people from Asia, Africa, Europe and America in our community. With the children's posters, songs, food, and the displays of clothing, books and crafts from different countries, we definitely met our goal.
