On Oct 20th, Global Exchange hosted the Caravan of Mothers of Disappeared Migrants in New York City at our newly founded immigrant media collective, Molino Informativo.
The mothers came to the U.S. in search of their loved ones who left home to flee violence and find a better future but never arrived. The mothers came to New York City to bring awareness to the human rights and violence crises that impact Central American families, forcing people to flee, and to share the painful journey that families, especially mothers, have to go through while trying to find their loved ones who have disappeared while trying to reach the U.S.
Global Exchange is committed to helping these mothers. We are honored that we could help share their stories and raise their voices — to say the names of their children, make their disappearance known, and share the heartbreak they leave behind.
No están solas. (They are not alone!)
