Since August 12, 2012, Mexico’s Caravan for Peace with Justice and Dignity has traveled 6,000 miles across the United States calling for the U.S. to do its part to stop violence in Mexico. The caravaneros are calling for an end to the failed drug war that has left over 60,000 dead and 10,000 disappeared in Mexico over the last five years.
Join us on Wednesday, September 12th in the House of Representatives, Rayburn 2226 from 12-1:30 p.m. as U.S. Caravan Riders Tell their Stories. Join LAWG’s Executive Director, Lisa Haugaard, and the caravaneros as they brief Congress demanding new policies that will Foster peace, justice and human dignity on both sides of the border.
For the past couple of months, LAWG and other organizations have been organizing a series of events for the Caravan for Peace with Justice and Dignity’s final stop in Washington, D.C. from Monday, September 10th – Wednesday, September 12t. If you are in the D.C. area please join us for these unique series of events.
