Periodically in history, immigrant women have been the target of dehumanizing anti-immigrant rhetoric and violence. In response, we have created this podcast Immigrants Wake America, in partnership with the Tenement Museum in New York.

Immigrants Wake America features storytellers who share stories about migration and the centrality of immigrant women in their lives. Storytelling allows us to find similarities and differences between ourselves and others, thus offering a humanizing counterpart to harmful narratives. The podcast will be a living archive of stories that have not been heard before and serve as an intervention in the ways in which immigrant women’s (hi)stories are narrated and passed on.
