Do Lunch with Margaret Regan, February 22 (Canceled)
Join journalist and immigration advocate Margaret Regan to talk about how giving voice to the voiceless can change policy and affect public opinion and the role and responsibility of journalists in the age of Trump. Have lunch with her to get a different and involved perspective!
Margaret Regan is the author of two prizewinning books on immigration.
The most recent, Detained and Deported: Stories of Immigrant Families Under Fire (2015), which won a starred review in Publishers Weekly, looks at the fate of undocumented immigrants who are arrested long after they’ve established lives and families in the United States. The Death of Josseline: Immigration Stories from the Arizona-Mexico Borderlands (2010) investigates the tragedy of migrant deaths in the desert. Both were named Top Picks in the Southwest Books of the Year competition.
A longtime journalist in Tucson, Margaret started writing about the border in 2000. She has a bachelor’s degree in French from the University of Pennsylvania and she also studied French at the Sorbonne in Paris. She has twice gone to Guatemala, and studied Spanish in two tiny schools in the colonial city of Antigua.
Margaret Regan will deliver the 2018 Annual Human Rights Lecture on February 22, 2018 at 5pm in 115 Friedl, on Duke’s East Campus.
Do Lunch is a series of informal lunch discussions, exclusively for currently enrolled Duke undergraduate students, featuring ethical leaders outside of Duke and their decision-making processes.
