Media: June 2008 Archives

alborruiz.jpgAlbor Ruiz at the NY Daily News has been writing about migration issues for a long time.  I only stumbled on his column recently after I had the pleasure of meeting him a few weeks ago.  Ruiz’s reporting reflects an uncommon consciousness of international issues sparked by close connection to migrant communities here in NYC.  Here are some recent examples of journalism that you are not likely to find elsewhere:

Fair medical treatment for detainees, too 

A 20-year fight for immig[rant] rights

Immigration's human rights shame is now a moral crisis

Wyclef Jean shines light on Haiti's crisis

Locals can help ease Haiti's pain from food crisis

You wouldn’t know from the comments sections of these articles that NYC is a city of immigrants!  If you happen to click over to one of Ruiz’s stories, I encourage you to leave a respectful comment in support of his reporting.  You will probably be in the minority.

American Harvest, the non-partisan documentary about migrant farmworkers, American farmers, and the relationship between the immigration debate and our food, is hitting local theaters now!

Get into some air-conditioned comfort & see this important film, then get out and enjoy the season's bounty of fruits and vegetables with new eyes.
