A Pulitzer Center-supported project has been recognized by the International Organization for Migration.

Pulitzer Center grantee Anita Pouchard Serra won the South American Journalism Award for Migrations. Her project, Immigrant Women at the Front of COVID-19 Resistance in Buenos Aires, details the impact of a nationwide lockdown on immigrant workers in Buenos Aires and how they are surviving through self-organization and solidarity. This project focuses on the stories of women leaders in the Bajo Flores neighborhood, the biggest slum of Buenos Aires.

The Regional Office in South America supports the government’s efforts in the development of their policies and other areas concerning migration in response to migrants’ needs.
