Research & Public Education

Free Migration Project works to educate and inform the public about the widespread benefits of open migration policies. Free Migration Project organizes public forums, workshops, and panel events to provide a platform for scholars, advocates, and activists to challenge status quo ideas about migration.

The annual Open Borders Conference is a space for activists, scholars, organizers, service providers, students, and members of the community to come together to learn what open borders might look like; why open borders would lead to dramatic increases in public safety, prosperity, and equality; and what it would mean to #AbolishICE.

In 2018, Free Migration Project held the inaugural Open Borders Conference at George Mason University Law School in Arlington, Virginia. The second Open Borders Conference was held at The New School in New York City in October 2019.
