Migrant experience project

First generation migrants' experience living in the u.s.

This is a project about first generation migrants living in the U.S. Anyone who was born in another country and had moved to the U.S. could have participated in this study. We asked first generation migrants living in the U.S. to respond to a short survey sharing their experiences during the current administration. The focus was mainly on discrimination. A snapshot of our findings is coming soon.
