a digital hub on migration
creates a space to share and increase the visibility of student research on Latinx migration topics by amplifying academic and community collaborations that align with St. Thomas’ convictions of dignity, respect, and diversity.
Our project starts with the fastest growing and largest immigrant community in the Twin Cities area: the Latinx community. We hope to be able to add other voices and communities to this project as it evolves.
Our mission is to come together to better understand migration, to celebrate immigrant community contributions and to advocate for anti-bias perspectives on migration, immigration, and displacement.
