Organizer/AuthorMujeres Unidas, Mills College Chapter
We will be screening the film _Maquila: a Tale of Two Mexicos_ as well as a performance by artist Nefertiti to benefit the Mills College Delegation to Ciudad Juarez. Come support the organizations in this region of Mexico that are working to promote justice in communities struggling against violence and the presence of US-owned multinational corporations.

The proceeds from this event will support the work of organizations that the Mills Delegates will meet with during their trip to Ciudad Juarez next week. The group is completely student-led and has been fundraising for the past month in Oakland and the East Bay. Come support these young leaders who are working to create awareness and express their solidarity with the women of Juarez!

Description from La Pena website:
Thursday March 16, 2006

For more than a decade, the cities of Chihuahua and Juarez, near the U.S-Mexico border, have been killing fields of young women, the site of over 400 unsolved femicides. Impunity and corruption has permitted the criminals, whoever they are, to continue committing these acts.
Small advances in the struggle for justice are due to the perseverance of victims’ families and NGO’s.
