On December 18th, the world will observe the United Nations International
Migrants Day. The number of international migrants is estimated to be
almost 272 million globally, with nearly two-thirds being labor migrants

There are several resources to share with your communities listed on the
ALA International Migrants Day page.

I would encourage you to look at the webpage for the UN International
Organization for Migration (IOM) Global Migration Film Festival
<https://www.iom.int/global-migration-film-festival> for movies clip to
hear the voices and journeys of migrants, consider offering screenings of
some of the films.

Thank you,
