On November 10th, Dos Pueblos (the NY-Tipitapa Nicaragua Sister City Project) is honored to host an evening with award-winning journalist, author and co-host of Democracy Now! Juan González speaking on the current state of immigration in the United States.
Juan González is ideally equipped to address issues such as:
Why the influx of child migrants from Central America includes many Hondurans, Salvadorans and Guatemalans, but very few Nicaraguans.
How immigration from Latin America is driven by failed US foreign and trade policies.
The politics of comprehensive immigration reform in this electoral season.
A hard-hitting columnist for the New York Daily News since 1987, Juan González received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Hispanic Academy of Media Arts and Sciences and wrote Harvest of Empire: A History of Latinos in America.
This event will be held at the landmark West Park Presbyterian Church located at 165 W. 86th St., at the corner of Amsterdam Avenue, New York 10024, an institution with a history of working for change and transformation in NY and the world.
