Al Filipov Peace and Justice Forum
Presented by Al Filpov Peace and Justice Forum
September 21, 2013
The Al Filipov Peace & Justice Forum is pleased to announce that Margaret Regan will receive the third annual Al Filipov Peace & Justice Award on Saturday, September 21, at 7:00 p.m. at Trinitarian Congregational Church in Concord. Ms. Regan is being honored for her work reporting on the deaths of migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border. As the Forum’s 2013 honoree, Regan will give a talk on “Deaths in the Desert: The Unseen Humanitarian Crisis in the Immigration Debate.” For a dozen years, Ms. Regan has written about the U.S.-Mexico border, documenting the economic, political, and historical factors that have contributed to the human tragedies in the desert. Her 2010 book, “The Death of Josseline: Immigration Stories from the Arizona Borderlands,” was named a Southwest Book of the Year and a Common Read for the national Unitarian Universalist Church. The Al Filipov Peace & Justice Forum works to promote peace and justice among all people, and to demonstrate the power of an individual to make a positive difference in the world. Mr. Filipov was tragically killed on 9/11/2001 and the Forum is held each year in his memory. This fall’s event is free and open to all, although donations will be accepted.
