Thank you!

Your tax-deductible contribution and volunteerism helps educate the public about the Pacific immigrant experience. Who were these people who came through Angel Island’s doors? What were the policies and preconceptions that detained them there?

International and local visitors, educators, and school children on field trips are some of the groups who benefit from the lessons of humanity and perseverance that Angel Island tells. Your contribution will also enable us to continue restoring the Immigration Station Hospital building, adding to the rich story of Pacific immigration.
