Chris Hedges is an award-winning journalist and activist, as well as a columnist for the progressive news and commentary website Truthdig. For nearly two decades (including 15 years with the New York Times), he worked as a foreign correspondent in Central America, the Middle East, Africa, and the Balkans. He is also the author of a number of best-selling books, including War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning (2002) — a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction; Death of the Liberal Class (2010); and Wages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative of Revolt (2015). He has reported from more than fifty countries, and has worked for The Christian Science Monitor, NPR, and the Dallas Morning News. In 2002, Hedges was part of a group of eight reporters at The New York Times awarded the Pulitzer Prize for the paper's coverage of global terrorism. He also received the Amnesty International Global Award for Human Rights Journalism in 2002.

First Friends of NJ and NY works on behalf of detained immigrants and asylum seekers. Volunteers visit and write to detainees, distribute writing materials so detainees can stay in contact with their families, raise awareness about immigrant detention, advocate for improved living conditions for all detainees as well as for immigration reform, and assist with resettlement for those either granted asylum or out on bond.
