The Immigration Project

Sharing and hearing stories of diverse cultural experiences help us to understand the complex heritage that has informed and shaped our identity as a nation.  

The Moth is actively seeking organizations who support and serve immigrant communities in New York City and around the United States. 

If you work for one of those organizations, we strongly encourage you to  apply to our workshop series
