Refugees have a deep historical presence in San Diego. In the Story Maps below, we use pins to mark important locations in the social geography of refugee life in San Diego. Some of the pins refer to places that refugees we spoke with identified in their personal stories to us, while others are locations that we learned about from previous research.
Click on pinpoints to read more about each location. Click and drag the map to see more of San Diego. If you’d like to suggest a location to be added to the map, please submit a request here.
