the american immigrant society

​The American Immigrant Society (AIS) wants to humanize, protect, celebrate, empower, promote, and inform over 45 million immigrants, together with their 36 million first generation offspring, comprising 1/4 of the population of our nation. Our primary mission is to spread the undeniable message that immigrants are vital for the moral and economic prosperity of our nation.  We do this through transformative 21st century digital means at every turn.  Our ambition is to digitally link tens of millions of like-minded Americans who all naturally wish to eliminate prejudice or discrimination against American immigrants.
The American Immigrant Society is a 501(c)3 nonprofit public charitable organization. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
