"As a documentary photographer and journalist, I don't claim to be an unbiased observer. I'm on the side of immigrant workers and unions in the United States and share their struggle for rights and a decent life. I take the side of people in Mexico trying to find alternatives for democratic political change. If the work I do helps to strengthen these movements, it will have served a good purpose."
Annual Fundraising Dinner to Benefit the New Hampshire Program
David Bacon, author of the new book, The Right to Stay Home: How US Policy Drives Mexican Migration, will be the guest speaker at the NH Program's annual fundraising event. As usual, the event will feature a dinner prepared by AFSC volunteers or donated by local restaurants. The event will kick off David's East Coast tour launching his new book, published by Beacon Press.
