Now Mark has done it again. In the face of so much ignorance and strife over America’s immigration policies, Mark set out to document the lives of new immigrants to our soil, telling their personal stories and showing the wealth of talent and economic prowess they bring to American life and culture. The result, “Together We Rise, Immigrants in America,” is a moving and illuminating mosaic of American life today. Look for the book later this year. It is being accompanied by photo exhibits, many of them featuring the Latino community, at major venues across the country.
