“Gun violence prevention and migrant justice in Mexico and Colorado. How we work together.”
On March 3rd, 2020, John Lindsay-Poland did a presentation in Denver as part of the American Friends Service Committee – Colorado Spotlight On! program.
If you missed it you are now able to watch the session here.
The crisis in migration is driven by a combination of anti-migrant racism and the proliferation of guns and militarism from the United States. 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.
John Lindsay-Poland is Coordinator of 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.
