Define American

Transcending politics through a new conversation

About Define American


Define American is a media and culture organization using the power of stories to transcend politics and shift the conversation around immigrants, identity and citizenship in a changing America.

Our request is simple: Let's talk.

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.

We hope you'll join us in asking new and better questions.

Let's Talk.

It's time for a new conversation about immigration in America, and it starts with us.
