Rostos da Migração (Faces of Migration)

Rostos da Migração (Faces of Migration) is a collaborative effort of Missão Paz, the Scalabrini center in São Paulo, and Maryknoll Lay Missioners conceived in response to Brazil’s changing social, economic, and political tumult in 2015. Multiple political groups capitalized on the societal unrest of the leading political party through nationalist rhetoric against the more accommodative immigration policy. The attacks were marked with xenophobia, and played to the worst fears in people:  Foreigners were depicted as “different from us” and scapegoated as a cause for some of the nation’s plight. Faces of Migration is the response; we counter the irrationality through the personal words and stories of migrants. The goal of Faces is to demonstrate that immigrants and refugees are – and always have been - integrated and woven into the local communities. They share the same dreams, hopes, fears, successes, failures, and important life experiences like anyone else. Our differences in accents and skin tones are secondary compared to the commonality of our human experiences.
