The Immigrant Visibility Project, also known as The Project: Immigrant, is a multi-year media campaign aimed at enhancing the immigrant of color experience across a broad spectrum and documenting the stories of immigrants by immigrants/immigrants sharing their truths not commonly found in mainstream media. The Immigrant Visibility Project will work towards achieving immigrant justice and dismantling the damaging media coverage surrounding migrants by broadcasting stories from urban centers with high immigrant populations and longstanding migratory histories. Through its successful execution, the Project: Immigrant will create sustainable systemic change, leading to more thoughtful and reflective representations of historically marginalized groups, reduced hate crimes, and discriminatory offenses on the basis of difference, and debunked myths and stereotypes derived from the American popular imagination and mythology.
