National Civil Rights Museum says
Award-winning writer, photojournalist, and immigrant rights activist, David Bacon will discuss his most recent book The Right to Stay Home: How U.S. Policy Drives Mexican Migration as well as his book Illegal People: How Globalization Creates Migration and Criminalizes Immigrants. Highlighting the growing resistance of Mexican communities and the poverty that forces people to migrate to the United States, his books shows how immigrants are fighting back in efforts to not be forced out by law. The book reveals how the interconnected web of labor, migration, and the global economy unites farmers, migrant workers, and union organizers across borders.

Bacon spent 20 years as a labor organizer and currently hosts a weekly radio show on labor, immigration, and the global economy on KPFA-FM. Bacon’s previous books include The Children of NAFTA and Communities without Borders. Learn about new perspectives on immigration told by activists themselves who reflect on their experiences, analyze the complexities of their realities and affirm their vision for a better world.

The event is FREE to the public and is part of the Book and Author Series made possible by the Slomo and Cindy Silvian Foundation.
