About the event
The Golden Door Award has been an IINE tradition for more than 40 years. The honoree is a U.S. citizen of foreign birth who has made outstanding contributions to American society. It is an occasion that calls us to stand together in celebration of the achievements of new Americans who have played an integral role in our community, economy, and society.
The Award takes its name from Emma Lazarus’s words which are inscribed at the base of the Statue of Liberty declaring:
“From her beacon hand glows world-wide welcome…I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”
