i am a migrant [access]
- "i am a migrant is a campaign and platform. We create a place for the personal stories of migrants. We want to challenge the anti migrant stereotypes and hate speech in politics and society. i am a migrant lets migrants tell their own stories – on this website, in social media and many other places worldwide. Together we want to show: Migration has a human face. Migration is diverse. This is why we are interested in the stories of all migrants, regardless of whether they have been away from their home country for 40 years or 40 days."
