About This Webinar

Join Facing History and Ourselves, Write the World, and Share My Lesson in a conversation with Sonia Nazario, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, to explore the changes created by migration.

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.

Join us in this webinar where 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 and 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.

Sonia Nazario's Pulitzer Prize-winning book "Enrique's Journey" paints a poignant episode in the lives of illegal immigrants in the United States. This webinar provided more comprehensive and insightful perspective on the issue of illegal migration. I can surely use what I learned from this webinar, as a tool to teach and approach immigration as a topic for class discourse.
