Thanks so much for taking the time to read and share your thoughts, Kerry. You bring up a great example of intersectionality. I've spent some time working in HIV prevention, focused specifically on harm reduction, and access to services is still inequitable (especially when you add on the component of gender). Migration is much the same. Most governments and even the public under them show some degree of prejudice towards people with a migration background, but discrimination is deepened the greater the perceived difference between 'us' and 'them'. For some people the limitations of family are much wider - I really wish more people would condemn injustice no matter who its victim is.
