Changing the Narrative
An Online Discussion of Human Migration, U.S. Immigration Policy & Racism
August 9, 2020
Led By Dr. Miranda Cady Hallett
What does a deeper story of immigration look like – one that replaces common false narratives?
We discussed the foundations of the current crisis by looking at the ways migration is rooted in bigger systems—economic dynamics, histories of intervention, and the turn in U.S. politics towards strict border enforcement and exclusionary immigration policies over the past three decades.
