Immigrant Journeys from South of the Border

¡Mi travesía hasta Wisconsin!

A glimpse into the life of a stranger can invite us to empathize with others and reflect on our own life journeys. That's why we invite you to read these eight stories of people who emigrated here from homes in Colombia, Honduras, Mexico, and Uruguay who now live and work in Wisconsin.

The Immigrant Journeys website also offers additional information to help us understand these stories in the context of history, policy, and our lives.

Get out and see the exhibit!

Though immigration is being debated at the national level, here in Wisconsin many of us have not had opportunities to meet or get to know immigrants from south of the border.

So we touring the exhibit, Immigrant Journeys from South of the Border, all around Wisconsin in 2021!
