Click here to read Sonia’s two-part blog for the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) about how storytelling can change entrenched views, even on the most polarizing issues.


Sonia Nazario’s latest opinion piece was featured in the LA Times on April 23, 2017. Sonia walks readers through the investments the U.S. can and should make not only to reduce unlawful migration, but get at the heart of why most people are now coming to the U.S. illegally. Drawing from her time researching what is pushing people out of central america, as well as U.S. funded violence prevention programs that are beginning to counteract that violence in places like San Pedro Sula, Honduras, Sonia shares her convictions as to how to best help, not only the citizens of this region, but U.S. taxpayers who need immigration policies that actually work to reduce the flow of migrants.
