Multicultural Community Forum "Free Trade, Unaccompanied Children and the Right To Stay Home" with David Bacon
Presented in partnership with the Maine Multicultural Center and PICA
Wednesday, March 28th from 6 - 7:30
David Bacon is a writer and photojournalist based in Oakland and Berkeley, California. He has been a reporter and documentary photographer for more than 20 years, shooting for many national publications, and has exhibited his work nationally and internationally.
Bacon covers issues of labor, immigration, human rights and international politics. His work has taken him to Mexico, the Philippines, Europe and Iraq. For 20 years he worked as an organizer for labor unions with a large number of immigrants in their memberships. This experience has given him a unique insight into changing conditions in the workforce, the impact of the global economy and migration, and how these factors influence the struggle for workers’ rights.
David Bacon's latest book is In the Fields of the North / En los campos del norte (2017). This work of photojournalism combines haunting photographs with the voices of migrant farmworkers to document the experiences of some of the hardest-working and most disenfranchised laborers in the country: the people who are responsible for making California “America’s breadbasket.”
