The increasing politicization of migration has been fueling hate speech, xenophobia and hate crimes against migrants. Divisive narratives are largely rooted in misinformation and present a very narrow scope of human mobility.
I am a migrant is a space for people on the move to share their personal stories and journeys, challenge stereotypes, and lead the narrative on migration.
Contained here are stories of courage; personal achievements and journeys; of triumph and hardships; of people leaving their homes in search of a better future; people fleeing for their lives and their families. They are searching for what we all seek: a community, a home, a good living, safety and security, love, and diversity.
Do you know what it takes?
