Upcoming Speaker Tours:

Deportation and Forced Migrations: The View from Honduras

Join us at one of our Fall Speaker’s tour events with renowned feminist and activist Neesa Medina. Neesa will present a feminist perspective of current events, and the impact of US policy in Honduras.

Since the 2009 military coup in Honduras, murders and attacks against Honduran human rights defenders have reached alarming levels.

The U.S. continues to send tens of millions of dollars in aid to the Honduran police and military who have been involved in human rights abuses. In addition, the U.S. backs neoliberal projects that lead to displacement and migration. Come and join us at one of our events to learn more!
