International Migrants Day. If you are a person living outside your country of birth, share your story at #IAmAMigrant.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is calling 2013 the "year of desperation," focusing on the many migrants who have perished in search of a new life. Visit IOM's theme page for more information, including statistics on and locations of migrant deaths, an animated infographic, news stories, and a link to the "What Migrants Bring" campaign.
