NIF Keepers RGB Large

Keepers of the American Dream are the heroes who embody the spirit of immigrant achievement, contribute significantly to the well-being of immigrants in the United States, and are advocates, in every sense of the word, for the value of immigrants and immigration to the nation.

The National Immigration Forum and National Immigration Forum Action Fund were thrilled to honor three immigrant women who are quintessential Keepers of the American Dream. Thank you to everyone who was able to join us in celebrating the leadership of our 2015 honorees.
