Gun Violence Prevention and Migrant Justice in Mexico and Colorado
How We Work Together
The crisis in migration is driven by a combination of anti-migrant racism and the proliferation of guns and militarism from the United States. John Lindsay-Poland documents the legal and illegal flows of guns from the United States that are bringing devastating violence to communities and migrants in Mexico and Central America. This event will explore the trajectory of trans-border U.S. guns and policies, how Mexico is responding, and what our communities can do to stop these vectors of violence and trauma.
Guest Speaker: John Lindsay-Poland coordinates Stop U.S. Arms to Mexico, a project of Global Exchange (www.stopusarmstomexico.org), and is the author of Plan Colombia: U.S. Ally Atrocities and Community Activism(Duke University Press). He also serves as California Healing Justice Associate with American Friends Service Committee.
