FWD.us released a new video, “Home,” to kick off Immigrant Heritage Month (IHM) 2019, a nationwide effort to gather and share the inspirational stories of immigrants in America. Spearheaded by the I Am An Immigrant campaign, this year marks the sixth annual Immigrant Heritage Month, an opportunity to celebrate immigrants and immigration, our heritage, and the countless contributions that immigrants have made and continue to make to our nation.
“Home” features the stories of nearly a dozen immigrants and refugees, both those who are new Americans and those whose families have been a part of the American experience for generations. In the video, the participants express what “home” means to them, and provide the viewer a window into the diverse but universal experiences of their everyday lives. Individuals in the video attend graduations, prepare for the arrival of a new baby, and run their businesses - all while defining their original and new sense of home.
