Migration has been a key topic for GroundTruth since its earliest days. From internal and regional migration in Africa, to the plight of Syrian refugees stuck in camps across Europe and the struggle of Central American migrants on both sides of the U.S. border, we’ve covered both the human and policy sides of this issue. In our latest special report, “Here to Stay,” our fellows focused on the challenges and opportunities of resettlement during the COVID-19 pandemic both at home and abroad.
To provide broader context to their stories, we curated a selection of reporting by our fellows and Report for America corps members that follow migrant communities from various countries on their journeys to adjust to and belong in a new society – as well as the barriers they face along the way. Using this storymap, we trace stories that remain relevant to this day. A reminder of the multiple challenges migrants face to rebuild their lives in new places.
