Speaking of Migration

Every other Wednesday at 2pm on WRFI and podcasting on


Starting April 6, tune in every other Wednesday at 2pm for "Speaking of Migration." The program will bring you the voices of Central American immigrants and migrants, their stories, perspectives, and a visions for a more just immigration system and world.

Transnational political and economic forces have depleted rural Salvadoran communities, driving Salvadorans to flee and seek refuge and economic opportunities. Then they often also face repression and exploitation beyond their national borders. In the US, we hear about the plight of Salvadoran refugees, but the voices and aspirations of rural communities left in El Salvador are seldom heard.

This project will be developing a different kind of transnational network, which begins with the stories and visions of rural Salvadoran communities and seeks to support several of the grassroots praxis and research objectives of rural communities and organizations in El Salvador that face historical and current dispossession from their lands and livelihoods.
