With more than 250 million migrants around the globe, including more than 65 million refugees, migration has sparked intense partisan debate, inspired advocacy, and changed the face of cities, neighborhoods and schools. In this webinar, we explore powerful human stories behind this global trend in conversation with Sonia Nazario, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of Enrique’s Journey: The True Story of a Boy Determined to Reunite with His Mother. Years after his mother left him behind in Honduras to seek work in the United States, Enrique embarked on a harrowing odyssey to find her. Join us to discuss the importance of stories in addressing today’s challenges of borders and belonging, and learn about Facing History & Ourselves’ extensive resources for teaching about immigration in social studies and literature classrooms.
Participants will receive access to Facing History's study guide for the YA version of Enrique's Journey, along with current events lessons and other multimedia resources.
Presented in partnership with Write the World, a global community of young writers.
