We are a student-led group from the Washington D.C. area working to make migrants' voices heard within our local and global community. We plan to connect and tell migrants' stories through our educational webinars, interviews and through our global letter-writing campaign. Additionally, we look at the impact of current events such as COVID-19, and a response to the injustice committed against the Black community in the United States and globally. We plan to offer resources such as petitions and ways to get actively involved with migration. Through this initiative, we plan to unveil the obstacles, courage, and pain behind what we call a "crisis," but refugees and migrants call "life."

Our mission is to create a platform and a community for migrants' voices to be heard. When hearing about migrants, we tend to think about numbers, statistics and stereotypes without acknowledging their humanity. We strive to build a bridge between international organizations, local movements and the community we hope to build through our website and projects.
