Americans Write Love Letters to Immigrants on Valentine’s Day for #ToImmigrantsWithLove Campaign

WASHINGTON, DC – I Am An Immigrant today relaunched #ToImmigrantsWithLove, a digital letter-writing and photo-sharing campaign to show support for immigrant communities across the nation. #ToImmigrantsWithLove is an opportunity for allies to lift up positive stories of immigration in America, and reaffirm the importance of immigrants and their many contributions to the social and economic fabric of our nation. Millions of individuals have made the United States vibrant and strong. This campaign honors each of our families’ sacrifices, struggles, and successes, because America’s strength is reflected in our diversity built over generations.

#ToImmigrantsWithLove is also hosting events around the country to celebrate and support the immigrants in our communities. Today starting at 11:30 am ET at Duffy Square (46th and Broadway) in NYC, there will be a pop-up in Times Square, as part of a broader event celebrating Valentine’s Day hosted by the Times Square Alliance. Participants will have the opportunity to write a love letter to the immigrants in their lives and show that Americans stand shoulder-to-shoulder with immigrants who enrich communities across our country.
More than a dozen colleges and universities across the nation are also supporting #ToImmigrantsWithLove by hosting postcard-writing events on campus. There will also be opportunities for participants to write #ToImmigrantsWithLove letters in support of immigrants in Denver at the Colorado State Capitol, Atlanta at the Paul D. Coverdell Legislative Building, Chicago, and San Francisco, among others.

Also new to this year’s #ToImmigrantsWithLove campaign is the “LoveBot,” which will deliver a special reply to Twitter users who “favorite” or “love” one of the@IAmAnImmigrant tweets. Everyone can get involved by sharing your love with@IAmAnImmigrant and the #ToImmigrantsWithLove campaign.

Last year, the #ToImmigrantsWithLove campaign reached roughly 40 million people on social media and garnered more than 2,700 digital letters of support to immigrants living in the United States. The campaign saw an outpouring of support from dozens of business leaders, celebrities, tech influencers and policymakers, as well as 125 community organizations and nonprofits from across the country.
