This interdisciplinary, multimedia document gathers various media pertaining to human displacement and migration. The collected perspectives take the form of poetry, academic research, books, photography, as well as un-sortable multimedia projects. Depending on the source, they are cited, introduced, quoted, summarized and/or analyzed. These sources are connected by their enactment of creative resistance, authenticity, proximity to lived experience with displacement and migration, and dedication to uplift the very truths silenced by colonialism and every intersecting mode of oppression that seeks to control and dominate. These truths are that every single human seeking asylum is a capable, resilient, intelligent, self-reliant, creative, complex, imperfect, autonomous individual with crucial family structures, religious beliefs, political beliefs, artistic and scientific capabilities, hopes and fears, etc… and even if they were to bring nothing to the table or to a country except their humanity, that would be enough justification to obligate and necessitate the protection of their freedoms, rights, dignities, and futures.
