In partnership with New America’s National Fellows Program
Join the New America's Fellows Program for a conversation with Jason DeParle, author of A Good Provider is One Who Leaves: One Family and Migration in the 21st Century, and Cecilia Muñoz, Vice President for Public Interest Technology and Local Initiatives at New America, about our new age of global migration.
Migration is changing the world–reordering politics, economics, and cultures across the globe. When Jason DeParle moved into the Manila slums with Tita Comodas and her family three decades ago, he never imagined his reporting on them would span three generations and turn into the defining chronicle of a new age—the age of global migration. A Good Provider is One Who Leaves gives new meaning to “immersion journalism.” DeParle paints an intimate portrait of an unforgettable family as they endure years of sacrifice and separation, willing themselves out of shantytown poverty into a new global middle class. Expertly combining the personal and panoramic, DeParle presents a family saga and a global phenomenon.
