This brown bag forum, Climate Justice and the U.S. – Mexico Border: How Militarized Immigration Enforcement Hurts Climate Change-Impacted Communities brings together an investigative journalist who covers the increasing militarization of the U.S.-Mexico border and its implications for climate justice, with a local activist from Sanctuary DMV, who organizes for immigrants’ rights in the District-Maryland-Virginia area. They will address how militarized U.S. immigration and border policy is criminalizing vulnerable people who are displaced by poverty, violence, instability, and increasingly, climate change, and are forced to migrate to survive. They will also discuss the growing resistance movements fighting for the human rights of migrants.
There will be ample time for discussion. The event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP.
