Conexión Migrante is an independent digital information hub for Mexican and Latino immigrants in the US, of whom some 12 million are undocumented. The media outlet offers journalism, a call centre and chatbot giving migrants personalized information and advice on procedures. It offers WikiMigrante, a powerful search engine with hundreds of fact sheets, and free membership to create a formerly invisible migrant community and to find lost people. Conexión Migrante is an example of information technologies helping a vulnerable population.
