Who We Are
Imagine 2050 was launched in 2008 by the staff of Center for New Community. Since then its contributors have included activists, immigrants, artists and students who are invested in a future nation that embodies a multiracial democracy. We publish original content several times a week with a special emphasis on the people, organizations, and discussions that are shaping our democracy and national identity. By the year 2050, one out of five Americans will be foreign born. Latino and Asian communities will increase significantly. There will be no clear racial or ethnic majority.
We will become a nation of minorities. Today’s perceptions of foreignness will challenge how Americans identify themselves over the coming decades. In light of these challenges, Imagine 2050 is committed to igniting candid conversations around race, immigration, environment, and American identity.
