California Humanities’ CA 2020: Democracy and the Informed Citizen Initiative Showcases Pulitzer Prize-winner Sonia Nazario

California Humanities presents ON IMMIGRATION AND JOURNALISM: A CONVERSATION WITH SONIA NAZARIO in Bakersfield on October 9 and in San Jose on October 16. These two free public forums are presented in partnership with Bakersfield College’s Distinguished Speaker Series and the Foothill-De Anza Community College District.

Nazario won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize in Feature Writing for her six-part Los Angeles Times series “Enrique’s Journey” about the experiences of Latin American children immigrating to the United States. She is also currently an opinion writer with the New York Times, focusing on immigration and asylum issues.

ON IMMIGRATION AND JOURNALISM is presented as part of California Humanities’ CA 2020: Democracy and the Informed Citizen initiative, a year-long partnership with California community colleges designed to engage a broad cross-section of young Californians in a consideration of the vital connections between democracy and journalism. The initiative brings Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists to California campuses, provides hands-on media literacy training, and helps amplify young people’s voices and perspectives in the public dialogue.

CA 2020: Democracy and the Informed Citizen is funded in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s Democracy and the Informed Citizen Initiative, in partnership with the Pulitzer Prizes and administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils. Additional support for this initiative has been provided by the Stuart Foundation, Panta Rhea Foundation, The Virginia and Alfred Harrell Foundation, The McConnell Foundation, the Parker Foundation, Nordson Corporation Foundation, Knight Foundation Fund, and the California Arts Council.
