IOM has launched its new campaign: I am a migrant
Tuesday, July 21, 2015
I am a migrant is about humanizing migrants’ stories of migration and providing a platform to present their narratives in their own words. This project can help change the lens through which people view migrants and migration.
This joint International Organization for Migration (IOM) and Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI) global campaign seeks to challenge prevailing unfavourable media and public discourses which have an important impact on public perceptions of migration by creating one of the greatest audio archives on migration in the world.
With one person in seven people migrating across the world, it is important to show that behind every migrant, there is a story worth hearing.
