Women at Noon with Pulitzer-winner Sonia Nazario

September 30, 2009

Join us for the next Women at Noon presentation where Sonia Nazario, a Pulitzer Prize-winner, will discuss her experience following the migrant trail from Mexico to the U.S.

Our Newest Neighbors: Single Mothers from Central America and Mexico

Single mothers are the new face of migrants coming to the U.S. Millions, faced with grinding poverty, must choose—stay at home and watch as their children go hungry, or leave their children to come to the U.S.

In this Women at Noon presentation, Pulitzer prize winning journalist and author Sonia Nazario will discuss how her own trek atop freight trains through Mexico, following the migrant trail, led her to some surprising discoveries and the constant question, "What choice would I make if I were in their shoes?"
