Re-Imagining Migration – It’s not an option, it’s an imperative.
Re-imagining Migration addresses one of our nation’s most challenging issues today: the ways that polarization, prejudice, and hatred between people of different identities, backgrounds, and perspectives are dividing and damaging our communities and our nation. In the current environment, children of immigrants are often targets of overlapping prejudices as both members of immigrant families and as young people of color. These factors impair their academic, social, and civic opportunities for success, and imperil the prospects for our shared democracy.
We believe that leveraging opportunities across the educational ecosystem to build bridges among young people in classrooms and communities is one of the most compelling and effective ways to change this destructive dynamic. Our new research-based approach is designed to achieve this.
