Multicultural Council of Riverside presents
7th Annual Day of Inclusion
Sunday, December 17, 2017 at 1:00pm - 4:00pm
- General Admission - FREE
The 7th Annual Day of Inclusion will feature the Riverside Harada House, a National Historic Landmark. Come learn why this house is important to Riverside and how it ties to our right to own property.
The "Day of Inclusion" was authored by Assemblyman Mike Eng and designated in 2009 as such by means of California State Assembly Concurrent Resolution (ACR) 76 to be December 17th.
On December 17, 1943, the Magnuson Act repealed the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 and marked a turning point regarding society's harsh attitudes towards immigration and immigrants. By repealing the "Chinese Exclusion" prohibitions, the United States expressed its commitment to continue to break down cultural barriers, appreciate differences, enrich cultural diversity, and further racial, religious and cultural tolerance. The hope and aspiration of America's future lies in embracing our shared differences.
December 17th, the Day of Inclusion, is a day set aside for all of us to remember and learn about the sacrifices and contributions of our immigrant heritage in becoming American by embracing our shared differences and common goals.
