Our Migration Story

Session 1

Lincoln Hall, LH 1028

10:00 AM - 11:10 AM

Everyday over 3,000 people leave the Philippines in search of opportunities to give their families better lives. Chances are, for many of us in diaspora, our families migrated for the same reason. But what created these conditions, where we are forced to migrate to find 'better opportunities'? What is its impact, for us in diaspora and our motherland? And what are things we can do about it? We invite everyone to join us as we address these questions, to transform the knowledge we gain to power towards creating change.
