NYIC participates in Breakthrough's #ImHERE campaign

In mid-August, Breakthrough, an organization that uses multimedia, pop culture, and community engagement to raise awareness about human rights issues, launched an online campaign called #ImHERE to bring global attention and to support human rights for immigrant women. When Breakthrough launched the campaign, they wrote: Our broken immigration system and cruel anti-immigrant laws have had particular impact on immigrant women and the families they’re raising. Let them know you’re here for them. And we are. That's why the New York Immigration Coalition endorsed the campaign and joined as a partner.

The campaign is simple, engaging young people online in conversations about the struggles immigrant women face and how to support them. To add your voice to the campaign, all you have to do is take a photo of yourself with a sign that says, "I'm Here" (for immigrant women) and submit it to the #ImHere tumblr, joining over 500 people from 41 countries who have submitted their photos. The campaign has reached over 2.4 million people through conversations sparked on Twitter, Tumblr, on Facebook and in the blogosphere, and NYIC is happy to be a part of it!

Below check out a collage of NYIC's staff holding signs saying #ImHere in support of immigrant women! Join us by submitting your own photo by going to the #ImHERE Tumblr and clicking “submit."
