Somewhere We Are Human
A collection of 35 bold, important, and groundbreaking essays and poems by migrants, refugees and Dreamers, including award-winning writers, artists, and activists, that illuminate what it is like living undocumented today. In the overheated debate about immigration, we often lose sight of the humanity at the heart of this divisive issue. The immigrants and refugees living precariously in the United States are mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters. Individuals propelled by hope and fear, they gamble their lives on the promise of America, yet their voices are rarely heard. During this time of political unrest and uncertainty, this anthology of essays, poetry, and art reminds us of this truth and seeks to shift the debate, now shaped by rancorous stereotypes and xenophobia, towards one rooted in humanity and justice.
