White Fund Series: Enrique’s Journey and America’s Immigration Dilemma

Sonia Nazario, Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author and Journalist
Friday, April 8, 8:45 a.m.
Lawrence High School, Performing Arts Center
70-71 North Parish Road, Lawrence, MA

Don’t miss Sonia Nazario as she takes you inside the world of millions of immigrant women who come to the U.S. as single mothers, leaving their children behind. She will discuss the modern-day odyssey many child migrants — some as young as 7, all of them traveling alone — make years later riding on top of freight trains through Mexico
in their quest to reunify with their mothers in the U.S.

Ms. Nazario, who spent three months riding on top of these trains to tell the story of one child migrant named Enrique, will describe how that journey changed her view of migrants and discuss America’s immigration crisis.

Sonia Nazario has spent 20 years reporting and writing about social issues. She was named among the most influential Latinos by Hispanic Business magazine, and dubbed a “trendsetter” by Hispanic magazine.
