June is Immigrant Heritage Month in the United States – a time to celebrate the monumental contributions immigrants have made (and still making) for that great nation on an every day basis.
This Immigrant Heritage Month, celebrate America’s diversity.
America’s diversity–fueled in great part by immigrants–makes it stronger and more connected as a nation.
Since June of 2014, Immigrant Heritage Month has given people across the United States an opportunity to explore their own heritage and celebrate the shared diversity that forms the unique story of America. This belief fueled the wildly successful 2016 launch of the ‘I Am An Immigrant’ campaign, which encourages all Americans to celebrate the monumental contributions of immigrants.
Washington, DC – June is Immigrant Heritage Month, and “I Am An Immigrant” is hosting pop-up experiences and a series of events around the U.S to celebrate and lift up the critical contributions of immigrants in our communities.
Celebrations kicked off in New York City this past weekend, with participation from thousands of people including “Hamilton” star Javier Muñoz, Piper Perabo, Ana Villafañe, and Dean Obeidallah, among others.
In just six days, more than 17,200 people participated in the conversation on Twitter using Immigrant Heritage Month hashtags (#IAmAnImmigrant, #IStandWithImmigrants, #IHM2017 and #ImmigrantHeritageMonth), resulting in over 200 million impressions on social media.
