Dear Supporter,

Just one year ago, Javier Sicilia's son and six friends were murdered by drug cartel members in Mexico. During that year, Javier Sicilia has transformed his grief into a beacon of light, exposing the devastating impacts of the drug war and has given a voice to all of its victims.

His organization, the Movement for Peace with Justice and Dignity (MPJD) has grown into a nationwide peace movement in Mexico. Now, the MPJD has decided to bring their message north of the border with the aim of building an international movement to end the war for prohibition, stop southbound gun smuggling, and reverse the alarming militarization of North America.

We hope you can come out for Javier Sicilia's upcoming visit to Chicago. He will headline events in Chicago on April 16th-17th that is part of a national tour that will end in NYC in May.
