Your story can be part of Latino History | Tu historia puede ser parte de la historia latina de Rhode Island
RILA' Nuestras Raíces Community Pláticas brings together individuals in the Latino community of Rhode Island to make history by contributing their stories, photos and family documents to our Latino History Collection.

Summer of 2019: We have scheduled three bilingual community pláticas — two in Central Falls and one in Providence. These events will bring people together to share with us their personal papers and/or photos and to contribute items to our collection. The Nuestras Raíces | Café Recuerdos art installation will be on display at each location, and Marta, RILA's Executive Director and oral historian, will be there to listen and record people's stories of immigration to Rhode Island.

Our objective is to add to our Archives, a collection of stories of Rhode Island's Latino Pioneers that display the rich and blooming history of Latin Americans living in Rhode Island. History is made every day, so by participating you can become part of the unfolding Latino story of Rhode Island.

To participate, come to one or all three main events during the listed summer dates held at partner sites. If you cannot attend either of these events, contact us and we can schedule additional sessions.
RILA y Nuestras Raíces reúne a personas en la comunidad latina de Rhode Island para hacer historia al contribuir con sus historias, fotos y documentos familiares a nuestra Colección / Archivos de Historia Latina.

Hemos programado tres pláticas comunitarias bilingües: dos en Central Falls y una en Providence. Estos eventos reunirán a las personas para compartir con nosotros sus documentos personales y / o fotos y para contribuir con artículos a nuestra colección. Marta, la Directora Ejecutiva e historiadora oral de RILA, estará allí para escuchar y registrar las historias de inmigración de personas en Rhode Island.

Nuestro objetivo es agregar a nuestros Archivos, una colección de historias de los Pioneros Latinos de Rhode Island que muestran la historia rica y floreciente de los latinoamericanos que viven en Rhode Island. La historia se hace todos los días, por lo que al participar, puede convertirse en parte de la historia latina de Rhode Island.

Para participar, venga a uno o los tres eventos principales durante las fechas de verano enumeradas en los sitios asociados. Si no puede asistir a ninguno de estos eventos, contáctenos y podemos programar sesiones adicionales:
