LAS VEGAS, June 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hundreds gathered Saturday, June 10, at the Asian Culture Center for Nevada's Immigrant Heritage Month Dedication Ceremony + Cultural Showcase to celebrate the fourth annual Immigrant Heritage Month (IHM), a nationwide effort to gather and share the inspirational stories of immigrants in America. Attendees were also encouraged to give back to the community by volunteering to help local immigrant-serving organizations.
The evening included performances by Latin musicians, the Comparsa Fiesta Morelense dance troupe of Las Vegas and Korean and Polynesian dance groups. U.S. Rep. Ruben Kihuen of Nevada's 4th congressional district was the event's keynote speaker and spoke of his family's journey to the U.S. and his pledge to stand with immigrants.
"My family came here in pursuit of the American dream," Kihuen said. "And the simple fact that a former undocumented immigrant is serving in Congress is a testament of the greatness of this country."
"We are overwhelmed by the turnout and support that was displayed on behalf of Immigrant Heritage Month," said FileRight.com Founder and CEO Cesare Alessandrini. "So many great folks came out to help celebrate their immigrant heritage and take part in an event that celebrated cultural diversity. We were delighted to partner with IAmAnImmigrant.com and the team at FWD.us to help put together and sponsor such an incredible event.
