Define American

Undocumented New York Launch Event
Angel Orensanz Foundation, NYC
April 2013

Whatever your background or beliefs, our campaign is about asking how we define what it means to be American, and elevating the conversation about how we engage as citizens. To start, the conversation is about immigration. Our immigration system is broken — and fixing it requires a conversation that's bigger and more effective than the one that we've become accustomed to.

In honor of NYC Immigrant Heritage Week, Agent of Change produced an event with Define American in partnership with The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, The Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards, The Lower East Side Tenement Museum and Hiltzik Strategies where we we celebrated the contributions that immigrant communities have made to New York City through the generations. A preview of Jose Antonio Vargas’ film, “DOCUMENTED” was shown at the event.
