PEOPLE MOVE FOR MANY REASONS.
Some move to attend college, to start a new job, or to be close to family and friends. Some move to build a better life or escape from poverty, conflict, persecution, or natural disasters. Some are forced to move through human trafficking and enslavement. And some are pushed aside to make room for economic development and urban renewal.
Often people move for a combination of reasons, including forces beyond their control.
“no one leaves home unless
home is the mouth of a shark
you only run for the border
when you see the whole city running as well ”
From “Home” by Warsan Shire, Somali British poet
