Earlier this month, hundreds of Black immigrants in Tapachula, Mexico organized several protests opposing the Mexican government's refusal to let them travel to the U.S. border to seek asylum. There are over 20,000 Black immigrants at our Southern border, from the Caribbean and Africa, whose stories are untold and their plight overlooked.
On September 2nd, Kendrick Sampson actor/activist and co-founder of BLD PWR joined Black Alliance for Just Immigration, executive Director, Nana Gyamfi and BAJI Legal Manager Tsion Gurmu for an emergency trip to Tapachula, Mexico. The trip was about bearing witness and interviewing African migrants who are trapped at the southern border of Mexico.
We are excited to have actor/activist Kendrick Sampson and BAJI’s executive director, Nana Gyamfi, share their first-hand account from their visit to Tapachula, Mexico and the denial of civil liberties #Africanmigrants are facing at the border. At this webinar, you will learn about the obstacles African migrants face at the Mexican border and what their demands and needs are.
