PEOPLE OF AMERICA FOUNDATION and AMERICANSALL.ORG
We are a 32-year-old nonprofit foundation that advocates multimedia Web-based storytelling to incorporate legacy preservation into social studies instruction. The history of our nation is deeply tied to immigration. Ancestors of all Americans came here from diverse locations. Legacy stories share these experiences and acknowledge that heritage and culture are rich aspects of personal and group identity.
Besides highlighting the role immigrants have played in our nation’s growth, the stories can provide insight on the contributions that all Americans, including our teachers, military personnel and first responders, make each day to improve safety and quality of life. These stories not only provide information for families, but also afford society and future generations knowledge and inspiration.
