Chris Antonowich, Project Manager
I've spent my professional life producing advertising campaigns and promotional content for a variety of products, services and causes. Once the Trump administration chose to hijack the narrative around immigration to exploit primal fear for political gain, I choose to lend my talents, skill set and network to those who need it most.
#StandsWithImmigrants is about honoring immigrants' contributions to our society. Immigrants work hard to provide for their families and their communities. Doctors, farmers, veterans, athletes, scientists, caretakers and so much more -- they are not only a part of our story, but a part of our destiny.
Their good works will be publicly celebrated and cherished. For me, that's a campaign worth fighting for."
