In this continuing series of conversations, we share across ethnicity, race, and citizenship status what it means to be an immigrant in Philadelphia.  Panelists begin the discussion about transition and settlement, and then audience members add their own accounts in an effort to create a much more nuanced understanding of what it means to “become” an American.  Refreshments are served following the program. This program is made possible through the generous support of the Connelly Foundation.
