We approach migration with a racial justice lens, illuminating the ways racism and colonialism shape human movement around the globe.
“Migration is an expression of the human aspiration for dignity, safety and a better future. It is part of the social fabric, part of our very make-up as a human family.”Ban Ki-moon

Borders, the Pandemic & Human Rights
From traditional borders to race/ethnicity, sexual orientation/gender identity and disability status as borders — our 2022 symposium mapped the unseen boundaries in human rights and international law.
Climate Migration as Reparations

Migration Tech Monitor
We support the work of the Migration Tech Monitor, a collective of journalists, filmmakers, academics and communities. Their mission is to monitor the use of surveillance technologies including AI and automation to screen, track, and make decisions about people crossing borders. The Monitor highlights the far-reaching ways these technological interfaces shape people’s lives and impact their human rights.
Technological Testing Grounds is their report detailing migration management experiments using tech. It is based on over 40 interviews with refugees and people on the move, exploring the systematic factors that create migration management experiments.Visit the Migration Tech Monitor Site
