STARS INCLUDING Lupita Nyong’o, Kerry Washington, Rosario Dawson and British songstress Estelle are among 50 other celebrities who have teamed up for a campaign honouring their roots.
The women don t-shirts with the hashtag #IAmAnImmigrant in partnership with Welcome.us for the month of June.
Founded by Welcome.us three years ago, Immigration Heritage Month was officially recognised by President Obama in 2015.
I Am An Immigrant wants to honour the sacrifices of all the families who have had the courage to leave it all behind in order to achieve the American dream, as well as their struggles and their successes.
“It’s a source of our strength and something we all can take pride in,” the president said.
