It's Immigrant Heritage Month (every month) at MOCAKIDS Storytime at Home!







MOCAKIDS Storytime at Home: A Champion, a Fighter, and a Dreamer



Have you ever thought about how your family got to America? Or all the strength and courage that they needed to move to a different country to start a new life? June is Immigrant Heritage Month! During this MOCAKIDS Storytime at Home, we’ll be shining a light on all those who’ve fought for a better future for themselves and dreamt of a better life for their families. Together, we’ll read My Chinatown by Kam Mak and Dreamers by Yuyi Morales. If you have one, bring a photo of the person or people in your family who first emigrated to America!

MOCAKIDS Storytime is free to the public. To join, simply register here!

Please note that this workshop will be recorded via Zoom and available on Facebook Live for one week.

MOCACREATE with Teaching Artist Yu Rong: Behind the Seams 接缝之下



Garment workers have long been woven into the fabric of the Chinatown community. Learn about their experiences, take a look at a replica of a one-of-a-kind quilt stitched together by eight garment workers, and contribute to a large-scale collaborative weaving project made by all of you.


Join us for this very special, in-person workshop on Saturday, July 9th, from 2:30 PM-4:30 PM, and meet MOCA’s newest teaching artist, Yu Rong. FREE— no RSVP required, simply show up!
