Celebrating Immigrants And Their Contributions through stories, talks, and workshops
Nalini Krishnankutty is a first-generation immigrant American, an engineer turned writer, researcher and speaker. Nalini believes deeply in the dignity and equality of all human beings. She also believes in the power of migration to open minds and create new possibilities for both immigrants and their new homeland. In her writings, presentations and workshops, she focuses on the history, experiences and contributions of immigrants, and the common threads connecting us all across real, abstract and imagined boundaries.
Nalini is actively countering the rising anti-immigrant sentiment in the country by developing and presenting eye-opening workshops and classes on how immigrants shaped and continue to shape the USA. She is currently building community platforms to spread awareness about our immigrant legacy, to make individual immigrants visible, and to bring them from the boundary of the circle to the center.
