Submit Your Migration Story to Be Featured on Our Instagram Page

Our Story Project | @OurStory

In conjunction with our organizational Instagram account @carecen_ny, CARECEN will be launching Our Story in early 2021. Our Story will be an archive dedicated to sharing generational stories of immigration to the United States. This country is built on the traditions, beliefs, memories, struggles, and exploitation of people from all over the world. We believe that documenting shared migration narratives will help unify immigrants across the country and invite profound reflection about ancestral histories, while at the same time raising awareness of CARECEN's mission.

Given our broken immigration system and a xenophobic culture that is now more visible than ever, we hope that both the storytellers and our page followers will see this account as a space for empowerment, belonging, and refuge. All of us, and those who’ve come before us, are the light that shines in the darkness. We can tell the story of life in immigrant America; the sacrifices and victories of our ancestors, our families, and our children. This is a place where their voices will be heard, the impact of the immigration process will be documented, and truth will be celebrated.
