New American Story Project

The New American Story Project is a space for new Americans to tell their stories.

Our Mission

NASP’s mission is to foster humane and substantive dialogue around the complexities of migration, US immigration and asylum laws, and human rights concerns of new immigrants. We believe that stories have the power to illuminate, to educate, and to increase empathy. Stories create change.

Our current project, Welcome Children: Voices of the Central American Refugee Crisis focuses on unaccompanied Central American minors who journeyed thousands of miles to reach the U.S. They tell their stories in their own words while legal, social science and policy experts provide perspective, up-to-date data and detailed context. We hope to foster greater understanding about the ongoing humanitarian crises in Central America.
