Join us for 24 hours of hacking the immigrant experience.

Innovating Immigration one family at a time 

Building upon the success of ‘I Am An Immigrant,’  this year, ‘I Am An Immigrant’ launched a new initiative #IStandWithImmigrants, which encourages Americans to explore, celebrate, and take pride in their own immigrant heritage, and provides avenues for allies to stand in solidarity with their immigrant employees, colleagues, constituents, neighbors, and friends.  

 

At Illicit Mind Inc, we are excited to again be partnering with FWD.us New York and the ‘I Am An Immigrant’ campaign, for our Second Annual Immigrant Heritage Hackathon. Join us for 24 hours of hacking, learning, innovating and networking with peers and industry leaders who are shaking up the way we look at the immigrant experience. We’ve carefully crafted an experience that includes a game changing keynote speaker, a panel of experts in immigration and a diverse group of hackers, students, and creatives who are prepared to come up with new strategies, insights and ideas on how to relate that New York is a City that #StandsWithImmigrants.
