We The People is the first of its kind – human and humor focused web series that highlights stories of immigrants to the United States with a focus on the positive, light-hearted and relatable nuances of making a new place their home. Light-hearted, fun and poignant, the 10- episode documentary web series explores themes of language, identity, stereotypes, life changes, loss and many others – challenges that are a part of life for any immigrant in a new land. While the mainstream narrative surrounding immigration can often be politically-charged and a constant source of angst, We the People explores the positively refreshing and unapologetically real aspects of what it means to be a new immigrant in America today. The United States, throughout its history, has benefitted greatly from the arrival of new people who bring with them fresh ideas, energy and ambition. Think Joseph Pulitzer, Einstein, Elon Musk, Hedy Lamarr… But that legacy is in danger today. There is an urgent need for a different, more positive conversation and this series aims to facilitate that.
