Author/Activist is Featured Speaker at AFSC Benefit Dinner
David Bacon’s new book is The Right to Stay Home: How US Policy Drives Mexican Migration
David Bacon, an author, photographer, and activist whose work focuses on labor and migration, will be the featured speaker at a September 14 benefit dinner for the American Friends Service Committee's New Hampshire Program, to be held at the Concord Unitarian Universalist Church.
Opening the elevator door to the Immigrant Rights Program office on May 24 was both an action and a metaphor – members of the “Opening the Door of Hope” Caravan were there for a lunch meeting. The caravan started in Mexico and has been traveling in the U.S. to raise awareness of immigration issues, especially the dangers immigrants face.
