We hope you see your neighbor and friend, a new face or American sister or brother to get to know. We hope you see that we don’t fit into pre-set boxes. Rich or Poor. Good or Bad... We hope you see a fellow citizen, a fellow human being, a fellow American. We hope we can go beyond the labels, or at least be okay that we’ll have a lot of them. We hope you see it’s all a little complicated.
Jordanian descent from England? Second generation Finnish from Japan? Immigrant who has paid more taxes than 3rd generation Americans before ever receiving any benefit of citizenship.
But it’s all also starkly simple.
We’re a nation of immigrants.
When you walk away, we hope you...
... Can find commonality with people you didn’t realize you could relate to
... See our Immigrant origins is what makes us powerfully similar…
... and what makes us very different, and that’s okay.
You be you, I’ll be me, and we’ll be stronger and better together
