Filipov forum to honor journalist

Arizona journalist and author Margaret Regan will receive the third annual Al Filipov Peace & Justice Award during a 7 p.m. gathering Sept. 21 at Trinitarian Congregational Church on Walden Street. Regan is being honored for her work reporting on the deaths of migrants along the US-Mexico border. As the guest of honor at the annual Al Filipov Peace & Justice Forum, Regan will give a talk titled “Deaths in the Desert: The Unseen Humanitarian Crisis in the Immigration Debate.” Loretta Filipov founded the forum as a memorial to her husband, who was killed in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. The forum works to promote peace and justice among all people, and to demonstrate the power of an individual to make a positive difference in the world. The event is free and open to the public, although donations will be accepted. For more information, visit www.alfilipov.org.
