Today is International Migrants Day!

In recognition of the 232 million people living outside of their country of birth, today is International Migrants Day! The UN is utilizing the hashtag #IAmAMigrant to share the personal stories of migrants, even UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. They have a Storify page you can also use to track the progress of the hashtag today. You can download some nice posters, such as the one below, from the UN website here.

Teh AFL-CIO recently shared stories from their office of what it is like to be a migrant as well. You can read them here.

Finally, the UN hosted a program today, which you can catch the tail end of right now, click here for more info:
