What’s your family’s migration story?

Almost all of us have a migration story somewhere in our family history. What’s yours? Whether its a 5-year-old story or a 500-year-old one, we want to hear it. What do you know about your family’s migration story and what do you wish you knew?

At this moment in history, more people than ever – 70 million – been forcibly displaced from their homes. Millions more have chosen to leave in search of a better life.

In our series, “On the move,” Monitor reporters share perspectives on migration from pivotal places across the globe. We launched “On the move” to give you the bigger picture. And now we want to hear what propelled you or your family members to make your own moves.
