A Celebration of Immigrant Heritage Month

Posted on Jun 14, 2021 by Lucas Brasil

If you didn’t already know, June is officially Immigrant Heritage Month. It’s an entire 30 days dedicated to being proud of your heritage and celebrating what it means to have so many cultures living and working together in the melting pot that is the United States.

Immigrant Heritage Month was officially declared in 2014 after an initiative from the I Am An Immigrant foundation. It’s designed to encourage immigrants, refugees, and their families to celebrate their backgrounds and explore how their cultures helped shape the U.S. into what it is today. Immigration and diversity are essential parts of the United States, and they deserve to be celebrated.

Immigrants Help Shape America

America is known as The Melting Pot. It’s an entire country built by immigrants from all over the world.

While the times of mass immigration through Ellis Island are long in the past, immigrants are still coming to America in search of opportunity. According to research, 13.7% of the entire U.S. population is made up of foreign-born immigrants, almost triple what it was in 1970.

Immigrants also make up a significant part of the country’s economy, adding over $2 trillion to the U.S. GDP and paying almost $500 billion in local, state, and federal taxes.

Besides being a major part of the economy, immigrants have lent their cultures to the United States for generations, helping to make the country what it is today—and that’s something that deserves celebration.

Celebrate with Your Family Abroad

The impact of immigrants is undeniable, but it’s not always easy for immigrant families to celebrate such a worthy cause together. Many, if not most, immigrant families are scattered all over the world, which makes it difficult to stay connected.
