A lo largo de la historia y hasta nuestros días, las personas se han trasladado de un lugar a otro para escapar del peligro y buscar una vida mejor. Pero con frecuencia los inmigrantes y refugiados encuentran realidades hostiles en sus viajes. Conoce más sobre la inmigración y la reubicación de refugiados tanto en Estados Unidos y como en el mundo, incluidas las grandes migraciones históricas y recientes, las dificultades de la vida en un nuevo país y cómo los grupos de activistas luchan por los derechos humanos de los inmigrantes y refugiados.

Throughout history and into the modern day, people have moved from place to place to flee danger and seek out better lives. But immigrants and refugees often meet harsh realities on their journeys. Learn about immigration and refugee resettlement within the contexts of both the United States and the world, including historical and recent large migrations, the challenges of life in a new country, and how activist groups are fighting for immigrants’ and refugees’ human rights.

Read Woke™ Books are created in partnership with Cicely Lewis, the Read Woke librarian. Inspired by a belief that knowledge is power, Read Woke Books seek to amplify the voices of people of the global majority (people who are of African, Arab, Asian, and Latin American descent and identify as not white), provide information about groups that have been disenfranchised, share perspectives of people who have been underrepresented or oppressed, challenge social norms and disrupt the status quo, and encourage readers to take action in their community.
