The Powerful Voice of Undocumented Immigrants
Share your voice! Participants should send their essay to ImmigrantStrongUSA@gmail.com by August 1, 2020.
The Winner will be announced on September 1, 2020. Winners will be chosen considering the following factors: Originality; Responsiveness to the question asked; The quality of the writing; and The substantive content of the response.
Richard Herman assured that “all personal identification will be kept strictly confidential. By applying, all applicants consent to the reproduction and publishing of their essays. “
“We are hoping that this contest inspires members of the undocumented community, at this unique moment in history, to share their personal feelings about being an immigrant who contributes to the well-being of the United States, who has deep ties to the United States, who may have U.S. citizen children or other family members, and yet has no legal pathway to normalize their immigration status.”
“We will also be publishing some of the non-winning essays in order to help give voice to the undocumented, to help stimulate a healthier conversation in the U.S. about immigration, and to encourage our elected officials to move on legislation that would provide an earned pathway to permanent residency, and ultimately citizenship, to the undocumented.”
