Our production team is currently gathering stories along the US-Mexico border, from Texas to California. We’re sharing accounts from communities who live near the border, migrants seeking refuge in the US, and organizations and activists working to help them.

Over the past decade, we have collaborated with partners across Central America, including indigenous voting rights advocates in Guatemala, environmental justice activists in Nicaragua, and HIV-positive peer educators in Honduras. Our work in these places gives us insight into the conditions that thousands of migrant families are desperate to flee. Our connection with these communities compels us to learn and share migrants’ stories.

Please contact us if you have a story to tell, or if you’d like to volunteer with us as a digital content producer or editor.
