Our International Women’s Day event last night was a major success, with hundreds of attendees from all over the US and Latin America. Brightened by the music of Lilo González, the event started with a film by CODEPINK’s Michelle Ellner, Women Displaced: Central American Migration Made in the USA, featuring first-hand testimonies from women from three Central American countries that have been heavily impacted by US foreign policy: Honduras, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. The film was followed by a live conversation with social movement women leaders from the three countries, who connected the dots between the impact of U.S. policies on their countries and the massive displacement of people from their communities. A recording of the entire event should be available soon, but Ellner’s powerful film can already be seen on YouTube.
