January's Theme: Immigration
Happy New Year! We are starting 2017 off with some personal stories, for our month-long focus on immigration. You will be receiving bi-weekly Illustrated Impact newsletters from now on, each month focused on a different theme.
This country is a nation founded by immigrants, by people who were all following the same dream of freedom and acceptance. These values remain integral to the laws, language and culture of this country. Fear and misunderstanding cast a long shadow over the shared beliefs that all Americans hold, particularly those individuals that made the life-changing decision to make this country their home.
In celebrating our diversity within these shared beliefs, we can encourage new ideas, powerful conversation and true growth. By listening to someone's story we gain more knowledge of what really makes America great.
