Hi! We at Kartemquin are trying to spread the word about the PBS broadcast of our film, The New Americans, which chronicles the struggles and experiences of immigrant families from the around world as they adjust to their new lives in the U.S. We would love any help we can get from bloggers like yourself in getting the word out to those concerned with the issues facing immigrants in the world today. Feel free to visit our website: www.kartemquin.com. Thanks!

Hi Jenna, if you're interested in learning more about environmental refugees, I would suggest visiting our site, The Climate Refugee Advocacy Forum, which deals exclusively with this issue. http://climate-refugees.blogspot.com/

Thanks for this site. Doreen Indra and I are anthropologists who have just started a website aimed at the ethnographic and photographic portrayal of riverbank erosion and displacement in Bangladesh using fieldwork data. The site is www.livingwiththejamuna.com. Those concerned with environmentally forced migrants might find it of interest.
