American Pathways

American Pathways is a new initiative to record, preserve, and share the stories and experiences of refugees, asylees, immigrants, and Muslims living in the United States.

This two-year project highlights the voices of both Muslims living in America, including African American Muslims, and specific groups including asylees, refugees, and immigrants, some of whom are DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), TPS (Temporary Protected Status), and DED (Deferred Enforced Departure) recipients.

Stories recorded as part of American Pathways will be preserved at the Library of Congress in StoryCorps’ Tapestry of Voices Collection and Anwar Collection of Muslim Voices. Learn more in our program announcement.

Partner with Us to Record

Our goal is to make the StoryCorps recording experience accessible to all. One way we do that is by partnering with national and community-based organizations. StoryCorps interviews celebrate voices and milestones and encourage meaningful interactions between your organization and the people you serve. Partnerships are free of charge, and conversations can be recorded in any language.

If your organization would like to learn more about our partner criteria and the benefits of working with us, please contact
