Stories by Location and by Person

On this page you will find excerpts of the interviews and some of the photos taken by participants in the project, organized by location: in Nogales, Mexico; in Seattle, Washington, and in Cali Colombia. You can also see them organized by themes. Photos of migrants at the border are anonymized to protect their identities. "Names" in quotations were changed. Texts have been translated and edited for clarity and brevity.
