The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation invites you to a public program featuring Define American founder Jose Antonio Vargas in conversation with Executive Director of the Inner-City Muslim Action Network and MacArthur Fellow Rami Nashashibi to explore what citizenship means to them and the communities they serve.
Citizenship is shaped by cultural values and norms. At a time when citizenship has become so hotly contested, these organizations are working to reshape the national discourse on immigration and its connections to race, gender orientation, religion, and socioeconomic status in a rapidly diversifying America.
MacArthur’s Journalism and Media program seeks to strengthen American democracy by supporting just and inclusive narratives that lead to more informed, engaged, and activated Americans able to build a more equitable future.
