Dangerous Journeys: How US-sponsored border militarization in Central America is fueling a human rights crisis.

For decades, the United State government has imposed economic and military policies in Mexico & Central America that have resulted in massive displacement and family separation. Rather than change its polices or assist victims, the US has a dangerous new plan: stop migrants and asylum-seekers from leaving their countries of origin, no matter the cost.

Join us for a conversation with Moisés Gómez, professor and researcher at the Central American University (UCA) - Jesuit Migration Network El Salvador to learn more about:

The root causes of migration and forced displacement
The impact of US-sponsored border militarization in the region
How you can join the fight to defend the lives and rights of migrants

Friday, May 27
6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
2940- 16Th Street, room 217
San Francisco (between Mission and South Van Ness, near 16th St. Bart)
