In recent days, a large group of families, young people and individuals from Honduras, as well as a smaller group from El Salvador began moving northward in caravan, with the goal of seeking refuge in the United States. Understanding the dynamics of this new migration pattern, now in its 4th month, will be important to coordinating a humanitarian and advocacy response. Please join us to hear from Honduran human rights defender, Miroslava Cerpas, from CIPRODEH, who has accompanied the caravan from Honduras. She will be joined by Oscar Chacón and Helena Olea from Alianza Americas, and Ciria Villatoro from Centro Fray Matias in Tapachula, Mexico. Interpretation into English will be provided.
