"Egypt Migrations is a federally incorporated not-for-profit educational, community outreach, and archival organization. Formerly, Egypt Migrations was the Coptic Canadian History Project (CCHP). CCHP was founded by Michael Akladios in fall 2016. Miray Philips joined in 2017 as the Blog editor and we extended the project’s activities to the United States. In 2020, [they] made the decision to transition from the Coptic Canadian History Project to Egypt Migrations. [...] [Egypt Migrations] aims to preserve, educate, and empower Egypt’s migrants and their descendants by countering this exclusion and utilizing storytelling to reveal meaning without committing the error of defining it. [It] collaborate[s] with geographically dispersed communities in sharing the stories of any who once called Egypt home and all those first, second and third generation living transnationally. The organization retains its emphasis on the Copts while expanding its lens to Egypt and its migrants, more broadly construed."
