Migration is a Human Right


Migration is a Human Right! La Migración es un Derecho Humano is a print dedicated to all the people who move across the land in an effort to live a dignified life. The design was originally created for print demonstrations at workshops conducted in Arizona. The use of the butterfly imagery was inspired by the monarch butterfly’s migration pattern. The monarch is the only butterfly that migrates both north and south on a regular basis. The organizing groups we are working with in Arizona are also using the symbols of the monarch in their political art-painting cardboard butterflies that decorated their protest drums. Recently the Undocubus painted several monarchs on the side of their tour bus which has been affectionately nicknamed Priscilla.
