About #LettersforMigrants

#LettersforMigrants is a new campaign from IOM X that aims to build public support for migrants’ well-being, showing that they’re human beings who deserve to be treated well.

To contribute, send us your letters to letters@iomx.org and we’ll post them online!

 
 

Ideas for letters:

1. Personal stories if you have a connection to migration (e.g. a friend or family member who has migrated)

2. An open letter if you just want to express your support to migrant communities.

3. If you are a migrant, a letter about your experience and a message to the migrant worker community.

 

To make this more creative, we’re looking for:

Short letters around 400 words + a photo of yourself holding a white piece of paper that has a short, powerful quote from your letter written on it. Remember, large & legible handwriting counts and landscape photo orientation is best.

Letters can be in Southeast Asian languages (bonus points if you can do this!) or English.

 

And if you’re a superstar:

An audio recording of you reading your letter OR

A video recording (can be done with your phone) reading your letter

 

Good luck and thanks for helping out! Just email us your letters and recordings: letters@iomx.org!
