What's your story?

Immigration today has many faces: they are the stories of the 68.5 million forcibly displaced asylum seekers and refugees, and of the 244 million international migrants around the world. Immigration is also the story of the current bureaucratic systems that fail to serve its applicants. 

We think it's important for the general public to understand the stories of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants, in an effort to build empathy and understanding of our common humanity. If you'd like to share your story, fill out the form below.
