Celebrities Join the #IAmAnImmigrant Movement to Remind Americans of Their Roots
Featuring Lupita Nyong’o, Miguel, Rosario Dawson and more.
In honor of Immigrant Heritage Month, several celebrities have come together to share their voices in promotion of the #IAmAnImmigrant movement. Despite America’s rich history that evidently shows how the country was built upon the sacrifices of early immigrants, many of the current generation have forgotten that, leading to xenophobic tendencies in the society. Lupita Nyong’o, Miguel, Rosario Dawson and many others highlight the importance of embracing the diverse culture in the United States, made possible because of immigrants. Quoting Akon, who also stars in the video, “The notion of Americans not supporting immigrants to me is absurd.” Watch the video above to see what the other ambassadors have to say.
