“Lydersen demonstrates that journalism still has the power to sway both hearts and minds.”—Brian Awehali, LiP Magazine

“We need solid reporting from the Spanish-speaking world, and Lyderson delivers it with grace, intelligence and a vigorous point of view.”—Scott Sherman, contributing writer, The Nation.

From the misty highlands of Chiapas or the idyllic coast of Honduras; to the harsh dry desert of the U.S.-Mexico border; to a frozen street corner in Chicago or a sweltering tomato field in Florida; these are the stories of Latin American migrants in the age of globalization.

Kari Lydersen writes for publications including The Washington Post, In These Times, Punk Planet and LiP Magazine and is a youth journalism instructor.
