Video: Women Displaced: Central American Migration Made in the USA

Our International Women's Day event last night was a major success, with hundreds of attendees from all over the US and Latin America. The event started with a film by CODEPINK's Michelle Ellner, featuring first-hand testimonies from women from Honduras, El Salvador, and Nicaragua, countries that have been heavily impacted by US foreign policy. The film was followed by a live conversation with social movement women leaders from the three countries. A recording of the entire event should be available soon, but Ellner's powerful film can already be seen on YouTube.

Howard County should end its contract with ICE

The Baltimore Sun published on November 11th, 2020 a letter by Laurie Liskin, a leading member of our Howard County Coalition for Immigrant Justice, urging county executive Calvin Ball to rescind his veto of County Bill 51-2020, which would have ended Howard County's contract with ICE to detain immigrants at the Jessup Detention Center: "It is time for Howard County to stop making $2 million per year from the ICE contract and stop this appalling treatment of human beings."
