"I am a migrant" is a platform launched by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) to allow migrants to tell their own stories in order to counter negative sterotypes. The aim of initiative is to show "the human face of migration."
The website has been "specifically designed to support volunteer groups, local authorities, companies, associations, groups, and anyone of goodwill who is concerned about the hostile public discourse against migrants". It allows the voices of individuals to shine through and provides an honest insight into the triumphs and tribulations of migrants of all backgrounds and at all phases of their migratory journeys. Anyone can post a story: migrants themselves, but also third parties who have gathered relevant testimony from migrants.
