A diversity of voices make up this map. Migrants of various ages, genders, nationalities, ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, dwelling in multiple locations in the Americas, tell us how the pandemic of COVID-19 is impacting their lives. Through their stories, we can see their daily experience of (in)mobility, confinement, risk of disease, their daily confrontation with bureaucracy, xenophobia, unemployment; and at the same time, how their vital struggle unfolds between solidarity, their strength and hope.
The migrants who took part in this collective creation sent their testimonies to the national research teams through WhatsApp. In some cases, their voices were collected directly by the researchers during field trips despite current pandemic. For security reasons, their names have been changed, and their identities concealed. Their explicit consent to broadcast their voices has allowed us to create this polyphonic map.
