The Tacoma Immigrant Stories Project is an ongoing initiative from the World Affairs Council of Tacoma to record, capture and present the experiences of Tacoma immigrants in their own words. From the date of its incorporation as a city, immigrants have contributed to the character and vitality of Tacoma. These brief interviews are intended to raise awareness of the immigrant experience in Tacoma and the contributions that immigrants have made to our city.


The World Affairs Council is grateful for the work of John Hargis of the Tacoma Public Library in filming these interviews, and Jerell Andres for editing them.
