Immigration between Generations
A Peacemaking Project by Whydah K.
What is the injustice we are solving?
The conversations revolving immigration often puts immigrant youth under the spotlight. Do we, however, invest enough attention to the immigrants of older generations that on a daily basis have to face a new society and adapt to a new environment? Youth adapt more easily to a new environment and have the ability to learn new languages quicker. The access to schools, after-school clubs and other activities offers a connection to other peers. Adult immigrants need the same connection to society and their new environment as youth immigrants do. However, they are given fewer opportunities and it is more difficult to connect with people in their communities.
