For the first time in 17 years, the Caravana de Madres de Migrantes Desaparecidos (Caravan of Mothers of Missing Migrants) transcended borders and arrived in the United States to uplift their plight by sharing personal stories and advocating for changes in the US foreign policies which contribute to the root causes driving forced migration. This historic journey was co-sponsored by Migrant Roots Media, Pax Christi USA, and Puentes de Esperanza in coordination with el Movimiento Migrante Mesoamericano. From October 12-24, 2021, the Mothers’ Caravan participated in a speaking tour to US cities and universities, beginning in South Texas where more migrants have died than in any other area (report here). The Stuart Center was honored to provide accommodations while they were in Washington, DC on Oct. 18th and 19th to meet with Congressional offices and national media. The mothers and relatives are from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico.
