Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation - Saturday Nov. 12, 2022
Join Jezuba and MJAA as we sail back in time to Angel Island to learn about our Asian American roots and heritage. The best way to overcome our dark history is to acknowledge its existence, learn, and grow from those who made the sacrifice. With such strength, we can better pave our future as a community.
From 1910 to 1940, tens of thousands of immigrants entered the West Coast of the United States through the Angel Island Immigration Station. Located in San Francisco's North Bay, not far from Alcatraz Island, the buildings were nearly forgotten and their history almost lost, until one day in 1970, when Alexander Weiss, a California State Park Ranger, re-discovered the treasure they held. His chance discovery began the long journey to save the immigration station, and ultimately, to save the stories hidden within it, and to help us remember its sad, but important role in American history.
