Immigrant Journeys from South of the Border

While at the national level, the migration of people from Mexico, Central and South America is being debated, here in Wisconsin, many of us have not had opportunities to meet or talk with immigrants from these places. shares eight personal stories from immigrants living in Wisconsin. These stories have been shared freely so we all can deepen our understanding of immigrants’ lives, as well as history and policy.

With this commitment to increasing understanding, we are inviting people to join their neighbors in small-group virtual conversations. These intimate conversations about what immigration means to each of us, and to our communities, are accessible to everyone in Wisconsin.

We believe in the power of individual voices. Immigrant Journeys virtual conversations are happening thanks to a partnership between Wisconsin Humanities and the Local Voices Network founded on this shared belief.

The exhibit, website, and related projects are produced and developed by Wisconsin Humanities, the state affiliate for the National Endowment of the Humanities. The Immigrant Journeys exhibit was produced in collaboration with the Centro Hispano of Dane County and began touring in the summer of 2019.
