Such a great campaign and so needed now when all this anti-immigrant, negative media is every where you look. I am an immigrant, and have been working in education for nearly 15 years and am now a Deputy Head. So many of the people that keep this country (which I love) running are from all around the world and it's time that this is celebrated, something that this is campaign is doing! Well done!

This is a fantastic campaign. You have the full support of Wilson Solicitors and we hope the posters get a really positive picture of immigration across to the public. We feel so let down by our so called political leaders and the media for the constant scapegoating of immigrants. People who have immigrated to this country have made an outstanding contribution to the economy, to society and to our cultural life - lets put the record straight. Well done JCWI for this initiative.

We absolutely love this idea and wish you every success. Like you our social enterprise celebrates different the cultures & traditions brought by immigrants from around the world over many many years. In London we are virtually all immigrants and it is the best city in the world! We look forward to seeing this project develop over the coming months..

I'm an immigrant, too, working in science to try and find better treatments for cancer. This campaign is sending a message that has been long overdue: anti-immigration politics is not only morally deplorable, it's economically and practically stupid. The more people get to see how immigrants make a positive contribution to society, the better!

Seeing this campaign really moved me. A history of embracing immigrants is one of the things that made Britain Great. Deeply shamed by the way I have seen immigrants treated by our last two Governments and very proud to be able to support this campaign in a small way.

We need to fight back against the untruths which are being spread about immigration. Migrants have contributed positively to what is now modern Britain. This is why I am participating in the poster campaign, and why I am proud to stand-up, be counted, and say with immense pride, "I am an Immigrant!".

I think this is a great project. I am French/German and although I have lived in the UK most of my life I am not allowed to vote so hopefully this can make some difference.

I am so happy you came up with the idea for this campaign! I am a Polish immigrant and when I listen to politicians I feel like I am no longer welcome in this country and worry that one day I may have to leave. It's great to know that there are people who celebrate immigrants instead of blaming us for all that is wrong in the world!

A brilliant campaign. I hope it will be possible to expand the campaign so that posters can appear in other areas in the uk where anti immigrant rhetoric is particularly prevalent. I've made and a donation and have encouraged others to do so :)

Glad to see something like this in the country especially during Elections period. An immigrant contribution to any country is unmatchable to anything else and Britain as a country is/was never an exception. All the best for the Campaign.

Refugees I work with have experienced an increase in violent hate crime since the rise of UKIP. Fleeing your country in fear of your life only to be targetted here by people who have been stirred up by the likes of Farage and the Tories. That's not cricket is it? We need this campaign to start to redress the balance.

This is a great moment and a first in the history of British Immigrants! Great foresight and wisdom to start a well balanced campaign against the ignorance and rhetoric going on against immigrants in the UK. Good luck Saira!

as a Briton living abroad, the increasing media hysteria about immigration in the UK sickens me. In the 21st century, we live in a gobalised world and we should embrace the benefits which immigration has brought to the UK. It has made the country a richer place, not only economically but also culturally, including to the arts, music and cuisine. The UK would be a poorer place all round without the efforts which migrants have generated for the country. all the very best for the poster campaign!
