In less than three weeks, an historic Mexican-led Caravan for Peace with Justice and Dignity will begin its trek across the United States and we're asking you to join us.
Since 2006 over 60,000 Mexicans have been murdered, more than 10,000 disappeared, and over 160,000 displaced, all a result of the Drug War -- a 41 year old “war” with no victory in sight.
Each one of these statistics represents a human story, which when told, we hope, will stir us all to action.
The caravan, made up of buses, cars, RVs, and campers welcomes the participation of all those who have had enough of drug war violence, gun smuggling, mass incarceration, money laundering, and the many other ills arising from more than forty years of a senseless war.
Mexican poet and peace activist, Javier Sicilia and dozens of other Mexican mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers who have lost loved ones to this maelstrom ask you to join the caravan.
Starting August 12 in San Diego, the caravan will travel through 25 cities before arriving in Washington, DC on Sept 10 raising and joining the voices of victims of drug war victims from both North and South of the border.
Become part of this historic cross-border partnership. Join us for a few miles, a few days, or all the way across the USA.
If you live along the route, join a local host committee.
If you can’t go on the road with us you can support Global Exchange to make the Caravan a success. Your generous donation will go a long way towards guaranteeing the success of the Caravan.
Stay updated on the Caravan by signing up to our Mexico e-mail list and by reading our People-to-People blog.
We hope to see you on the road with us in August and September.
