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

Define American is an independent, non-profit, media and culture campaign to elevate the conversation around immigration, citizenship, and identity in a demographically-evolving America. Despite ridiculously little in the way of money or staff, it has actually worked because of your support. We need to grow and need your financial help.

Define American launched with Jose Antonio Vargas' "coming out" essay in the New York Times Magazine in June 2011. Then we made history by putting more than 30 undocumented immigrants from 15 different countries on the cover of TIME magazine in June 2012; and premiered Documented, a feature-length documentary, at the AFI Docs film festival in Washington, D.C. in June 2013.

Along the way, we've been at the forefront of changing how the media perceives, frames, and writes about undocumented immigrants--many of them Americans in all but papers. Help us bring Documented and the Define American message to communities across the country.

Whatever the amount, please consider making a donation.
