Now - more than ever - it is important to demonstrate how America's diversity - fueled in great part by immigrants - makes us stronger and more connected as a nation.
This Immigrant Heritage Month, the #IAmAnImmigrant campaign encourages all of us to explore our individual heritage & recognize our distinct and shared experiences.We all have our piece in the American story, whether as a new immigrant, native to this land, a descendent of slavery or those who came to our nation seeking a better life.
#IAmAnImmigrant honors each of our families' sacrifices, struggles and successes - American's strength is reflected in our diversity built over generations.
Join artists, entertainers, elected officials, organizations and your friends in celebrating the diverse heritage of our nation's social fabric. Stand with immigrants, and join us on the road and online at #IAmAnImmigrant to celebrate the monumental contributions that immigrants have made - and continue to make every day.
