Immigrant Voices Stories Initiative contiues to expand

Thanks to a generous grant from the Henry Mayo Newhall Foundation, the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation will be greatly expanding Immigrant Voices, our living archive of West Coast immigration stories.


Family History/Reunion Day on Angel Island July 19, 11:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Lily Tung Crystal as Tye Leung Schulze

Our formal program will start at 11:30 and go for about an hour. We will feature Lily Tung Crystal's one woman show about Tye Leung Schulze, who served as an interpreter on Angel Island and was the first Chinese American to join the US Civil Service as well as the first Chinese American woman to vote in the U.S. Tye's grandson Ted Schulze will also fill us in about Tye's life and times. In addition, family historians Eugina Bailey, Linda Harms Okazaki, Kay Speaks, Sam Louie, Grant Din and others will share information about their Russian, Japanese, and Chinese families’ experiences on Angel Island and other ports of entry. David Pan from SF State will share what he and other students have learned about Rev. David Lee, who interpreted and advocated for hundreds of Korean immigrants.

After the formal presentations, you can travel through the Immigration Station barracks and learn from Angel Island State Park’s wonderful volunteers, and learn more from our presenters and see displays about their family research in Room 105 of the barracks. We plan to have this information available until about 2:45 p.m.

A Successful 30th Anniversary Celebration

Our 30th Anniversary Celebration and Benefit, held Sept 27 at the Westin St Francis Hotel was an inspiring success.  380 people gather to celebrate our Immigrant Heritage recipients and support our Immigrant Voices Initiative.  This comprehensive new collection of program projects will ensure that those voices and stories so carefully collected at AIISF are heard by the next generation.

More than $257,000 was raised!  We thank Linda Frank, Buck Gee, our event committee and all of those in attendance.  There is no greater way to achieve the future of inclusion we envision than by engaging our young people.  With your tremendous support we can create the country of inclusion we envision.
