In the midst of an era fueled by generalizations and incendiary rhetoric, how do we share immigrants’ stories in a way that is reflective and representative of their complexity and humanity? We the News aims to amplify these unique stories via a physical newsstand.

Through a series of story circles, immigrants will be able to share their diasporic experiences and anecdotes of their rituals and traditions. Each story circle will be documented in a zine shared at the We the News newsstand.





Share your stories about being an immigrant or a first generation American at one of our story circles.
