Immigration is not a political issue; it’s a human one. And as humans, each of our stories matter. Personal stories connect us to each other, transcending cultural differences so that we understand others and ourselves better.
Define American believes that the more we can tell authentic stories through entertainment and news media about people who immigrated to America, the closer we will get to changes in policy that will benefit immigrants.
Since 2011, Define American has been nurturing a new conversation by creating and influencing media on the role of immigrants in a changing America. We are nonprofit and non-partisan, and depend entirely on the support of donations to carry out our work.
Thank to your support, we can change how the media report on immigration issues and get television and film to portray immigrants in a positive and accurate way.
