Fall Symposium “Where is Cambridge From?”

October 25, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

The Past and Present of Immigration and Sanctuary

Who is Welcome and Safe Here?

Who feels welcome and safe in Cambridge? A look at the city’s history around immigration and sanctuary can reveal some compelling truths about the present. Cambridge became a sanctuary city in 1985, but what does sanctuary really mean for residents, for city government, and for communities? How has this history shaped Cambridge’s view of itself? Join the Cambridge Historical Society for its free Fall Symposium, titled “Where is Cambridge From?” to dig into these questions and more with a distinguished panel of historians and civic leaders on Thursday, October 25 at 6:00 PM in First Church, Cambridge, near Harvard Square.

Admission is free. Register at https://fallsymposiumwhereiscambridgefrom.eventbrite.com.
