Immigrant Movement International takes its name from three words with a specific context:
- Immigrant, as it is the word used by legal and political institutions to label people who establish themselves in a new context.
- Movement, as a way to create an alternative to the mainstream position, in the tradition and legacy of civic movements in the history of political advancement.
- International, as it recognizes the impossibility of discussing migration without addressing local and international perspective.
IM International is our acronym expressing international as the identity of people who migrate outside of their place of origin. Being international as we understand it is traveling with all your human rights.
Sometimes we simply use IM as play on words affirming our right to be acknowledged and to belong .
