Define American

Using the power of story to transcend politics and shift the conversation around citizenship

About DefineAmerican

Our Mission

Define American is a media and culture campaign using the power of story to transcend politics and shift conversation around immigration, identity, and citizenship in 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.

Define American is a project of Public Interest Projects, a nonprofit public charity.

Let's Talk.
