Help Carnegie Corporation Salute Noted Immigrants in 4th of July Advertisement

New York, New York, April 14, 2010 — Carnegie Corporation of New York is soliciting suggestions of women and men to include in its annual 4th of July advertisement celebrating noted immigrants. This will be the fifth year that Carnegie Corporation will produce the advertisement which it expects to publish in the New York Times on Independence Day. The full page advertisement salutes the contributions of up to 50 immigrants, and the millions of others like them, who have made, and continue to make, our nation strong and vibrant.

This year, we are asking for your participation in identifying immigrants we can celebrate on 4th of July. We would like to draw from a wide and diverse group of notable naturalized Americans.

Please submit your suggestions to 2010 immigrant ad.

To appear in the advertisement immigrants must be:

  • Leaders in their fields, e.g., the arts, business, government, academia, nonprofit, the sciences, sports, etc.
  • Naturalized American citizens.
  • Not holders of dual citizenship.

See past "Immigrants: The Pride of America" advertisements: 2009, 2008, 2007 and 2006.

Andrew Carnegie, who founded Carnegie Corporation of New York in 1911, was an immigrant from Scotland. We at Carnegie Corporation salute his legacy, along with the contributions of the millions of other immigrants who have made, and continue to make, our nation strong and vibrant. We are committed to helping immigrants become integrated into the civic fabric of our nation because enlightened citizenship is the everlasting strength of our democracy. Our national motto, E pluribus unum — “out of many, one” — continues to be an ideal we can all aspire to and a true guiding light for our nation.
