PROJECT: Im|Migrant Perspectives


Immigration has been a highly contested topic throughout U.S. history. While the U.S. has been framed as a country of immigrants, the experiences of different groups and individuals is often not accounted for in the dominant public discourse surrounding immigration. This project focuses on different (im)migrant groups and individuals in the Phoenix metropolitan area to get their (im)migrant story and their perspectives on (im)migration.
