NYC Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs
Immigrant Heritage Week explores New York City’s diversity through a rich collection of community events and cultural activities created to highlight the immigrant experience in New York. Established in 2004, Immigrant Heritage Week was made an annual celebration by Executive Order 128, signed by Mayor Bloomberg in 2009. This citywide event is celebrated around April 17th, the day in 1907 when more immigrants entered through Ellis Island than any other date in the City’s history.

The inaugural Define American Film Festival (DAFF) took place in Iowa in January 2016, with the presidential caucuses providing a backdrop to reach journalists and voters with a non-partisan view of one of the election’s most critical issues-- immigration . Six feature films, each exploring different immigrant experiences and issues, were screened over three days. Shorts on the same theme preceded each film, and audiences were invited to participate in panel discussions afterwards featuring actors, directors, community activists, local media and immigration experts. Define American is a media and culture organization using the power of stories to transcend politics and shift the conversation around immigrants, identity and citizenship in a changing America. Our request is simple: Let's talk.
