We are a city of immigrants and descendants of immigrants, and that is one of the things that makes Los Angeles the sublime and complex city that it is. One cannot think about the characteristics and the history of Los Angeles without considering its diverse population. In this time of political unrest and divisive politics nationalism and anti immigrant sentiments are on the rise. It is imperative that we remind ourselves that it is the diversity of our city (and our country) that makes us who we are and is a strength, not a weakness. Miyo’s concept serves as a reminder that immigration is an important part of our legacy.
