The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs kicks off the 20th annual Immigrant Heritage Week with a campaign Celebrating the City of Immigrants, honoring long time immigrant New Yorkers and recently arrived immigrants. This year, we celebrate the resilience and determination of past immigrants who built longstanding support networks and our newest arrivals who are creating their own. From Ellis Island to now, New York City is proud to be a destination for so many to overcome barriers and achieve their American Dream.

National Immigrant Heritage Month

June marks the start of National Immigrant Heritage Month and we will continue to celebrate the endless contributions of immigrant New Yorkers.

The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA) will continue to highlight and promote community partner events until June 30th in honor of #ImmigrantHeritageMonth.

Continuing our theme from last year, we will release a series of illustrations depicting various NYC immigrant enclave communities. These illustrations are also one way we celebrate & highlight the endless contributions, rich histories, and unique cultures of our city’s diverse immigrant communities.
