WNYC is a media partner for the 10th Annual Immigrant Heritage Week Celebration. A citywide celebration, honoring the experiences and contributions of the millions of immigrants who have shaped New York City for generations. April 17 to April 24.
Immigrant History Week was started by the office of Immigrant Affairs even before the NYC Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs became part of the City's charter. Immigrant Heritage Week was established through Executive Order 128, which was signed by Mayor Bloomberg in 2009.
