Aura Bogado portrait

Aura Bogado, "Separation Generation: How U.S. Policy Rips Families Apart," Tuesday, April 19 at 7 p.m. in Alumni Hall .

Investigative reporter Aura Bogado will talk about the challenges of reporting on immigration and migration – digging deep on stories that include ever-evolving changes in policies and practices of enforcement, which are best understood as part of the greater project of racial and ethnic exclusion in the United States. Bogado will expand on the challenges and opportunities faced by non-white women reporters in a field that’s long been dominated by white men, and the enormous value of adhering to a set of ethics that assumes the expertise of the lived experiences of marginalized people.
