Define American

Transcending politics through a new conversation



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.

We are shaping how the media perceives, frames, and writes about undocumented immigrants – many of them Americans in all but papers.

Every penny you donate amplifies the conversation around the role of immigrants in our society. When you support Define American, you not only allow us to continue our innovative work, but you reignite the American Dream for a new generation.

Donations can be made online through Network for Good or by check to:
