#ImmigrantsAreUS
Virtual Campaign

Immigrants are a crucial part of this nation. And they are essential to our future. These are the men and women working on the front lines against COVID-19, behind the scenes in research labs, and at all levels of American industry. In every instance, immigrants bring expertise, energy, and a global perspective to the U.S. workforce.

Upwardly Global is turning 20 this year – and to celebrate, we’re showcasing 20 stories that illustrate the many ways that immigrants are a critical part of this nation. You can help us celebrate the #ImmigrantsAreUS campaign by sharing the stories below, and make sure you save the date for our “Building A Stronger America for All” virtual event and celebration on 11/12. 

#ImmigrantsAreUS Stories

Starting October 1, follow us on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter for 20 inspirational stories from Upwardly Global program participants, alumni, employer partners, and community leaders. We’ll also share stories below as they go live on social media. Our campaign runs through November 12 — join us in celebrating at our “Building a Stronger America For All” event. Register here.
