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.

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?

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 and bearing witness to the atrocities, as well as those people and programs making progress in counteracting violence, in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, Sonia shares her convictions as to how to best help, not only the citizens of this region, but the U.S.’s best interests.

The only way to really slow the flow of migrants coming to the U.S. unlawfully from Central America is to help fix what’s pushing them out of the most violent countries on earth. Finally, the U.S. is doing something right in Central America–helping to fund efforts to reduce violence. Pastor Daniel Pacheco is leading the effort to cut violence in one of the worst neighborhoods in Honduras. He puts himself in the line of fire to help bring peace to his neighborhood. He needs our help. If you were moved by the story of Pastor Daniel Pacheco that was featured in my NY Times piece on August 14, 2016, please donate whatever you can – CLICK HERE
