This Valentine's Day, we're showing a little extra love to the ones who need it the most right now: immigrants.
Define American and I Am An Immigrant collaborated on the #ToImmigrantsWithLove campaign, a digital letter-writing and photo-sharing project to show support for immigrant communities across the country. At a time of much uncertainty and fear within the community, the campaign seeks to flood the Internet with messages of love and support for new Americans and those whose ancestors came to the U.S. long ago from somewhere else.
"There's never been a more important time in modern U.S. history to stand in solidarity with immigrants across our country," said Define American Founder and CEO Jose Antonio Vargas. "This campaign comes at a crucial time not only for millions of immigrants who call America home but for the millions of American citizens and permanent residents whose lives are connected to ours. We are an immigrant nation and we love our immigrants. Let's show it."
Comedian, actress, and producer Cristela Alonzo has also contributed to the project, saying she was inspired by own mother, who she said is undocumented.
"I wouldn't be here without the journey of an immigrant," she said. "I am with you and will fight for you to have the same rights we all have."
