This Week Online: Stories of Immigrants and Poetry Prize Winners

Though we are now on a biweekly print schedule, we will continue to post items weekly to the Web site. This week, in conjunction with the announcement of our 2010 Foley Poetry prize winner, we are featuring an online archive of past Foley winners. Check it out here.

We are also grateful to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles for providing video selections from their Web site Faces of Immigrants. The three videos now on our Web site tell the stories of undocumented immigrants. In the video selection below, Juan announces, "We are here. We are working. We are making a life in this country."
