Sonia Nazario would love to hear from you if you have read Enrique’s Journey and been moved by the story.

Since Enrique’s Journey was published, readers have reached out to Sonia every day with their thoughts about what the book has meant to them and how it has changed their perspective. Sonia gets emails from students, book clubs, educators, and readers who were moved by Enrique’s story. They tell her it changed their views about the migrants, family, love and determination. In many cases, it prompted readers to get involved to try and improve conditions the book describes—in central america, Mexico, and in the United States.

We would love to hear your perspective. Tell us what you think!

Did the book change your view about migrants? The immigration issue? The countries migrants are coming from? Your relationship with your parents, especially your mother? What solutions might work to improve conditions in the countries unlawful migrants come from, or in Mexico? What solutions might slow the flow of undocumented migrants permanently?

Give us what you think in a short video—preferably one or two minutes at most.

If Enrique’s story moved you in some way, we want to hear about it.

small OPED Photo_Page_1 Sonia Nazario’s latest opinion piece was featured on the cover of the New York Times Sunday Review 8/14/16. It’s good news! The piece shows how US violence prevention and intervention programs are helping Honduras, the country Enrique came from, reduce homicides. These programs have helped Honduras but also the U.S. by reducing the number of children fleeing these neighborhoods to migrate north.
Instead of the usual programs the U.S. funds, which focus on suppression, we should replicate these programs elsewhere in central america. If you are moved by the story of Pastor Daniel Pacheco, who puts himself in the line of fire to bring peace to the neighborhood I write about, please donate whatever you can HERE :
