About Re-imagining Migration 

Migration has been an integral part of our experience since humans first walked on the earth; while it ebbs and flows over time, it is ubiquitous. As we have seen throughout history, in periods of mass migration, newcomers are often met with skepticism and distrust. Educating young people to learn to live with, work with, and respect our differences is essential for the survival of democracy. 

Formal and informal educational settings are crucial spaces to help young people learn how to develop into active and informed members of their communities, negotiate differences and develop a lens to help them understand and respond to the changes, challenges, and opportunities that are a predictable part of the experience of migration.
