The "Image of an Immigrant" is an organization whose mission it is to provide the immigrant community of America a voice to share their story through music. Our recital series honors different immigrant musical cultures and by doing so, promotes acceptance and understanding in our communities. We believe taking charge of the narrative is important to spread a positive image of immigrants in our communities and to give young immigrants positive role models. Help us in our efforts to support some of the most vulnerable people on our planet whose voices often go unheard.
