Latoya Peterson - Migration

Latoya Peterson


From The Conference August 16, 2016

”When we pack refugees into this place where they just have to wait, we are forcing these people to an underground economy”

Being a refugee today means being an economic outsider; essentially living in a state of limbo. When people are forced to wait in camps, they are forced to live in a provisional economy consisting only of small trade within its borders. In many cases, these camps create the division of the digitally connected and the digitally marginalized, dividing the world into two halves.

Latoya Peterson, writer and founder of the Award-winning blog Racialicious, speaks about the digital divide and the blogging that changed her life. She urges us to speak up and ask the question of who we are including and excluding and to think of what consequences it will have for future generations.
