#IAmAnImmigrant Day of Action
October 22, 2019
On October 22, Chispas participated in the I Am An Immigrant campaign with our annual Day of Action by showcasing our immigrant and ally community on campus through a beautiful display of butterflies, our Gators Dream Forward mascot. Students met with us in Turlington Plaza to decorate a butterfly for our display, which is expected to be showcased in La Salita or La Casita.
#IAmAnImmigrant honors each of our families’ sacrifices, struggles, and successes—America’s strength is reflected in our diversity over generations. The initiative is powered by FWD.us and Moroccan immigrant and new U.S. citizen French Montana has recently become their very first ambassador.
There are entertainers, elected officials, and over 50 campuses around the country joining the #IAmAnImmigrant Campaign to celebrate the diverse heritage of our nation.
At Turlington Plaza on October 22 from 11am-2pm we embraced and showcased the diversity of the University of Florida.
