#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 firstname.lastname@example.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: email@example.com!
