Workshop Description

Presented by the Center to Support Immigrant Organizing, this workshop will focus on the root causes of migration from Central America’s Northern Triangle. Participants will explore the conditions that are uprooting migrants from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador and why they are traveling north to Mexico and the United States.


Learning Objectives

Participants will:

  • Uncover the roots of the current massive migration north from the Northern Triangle (Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador)
  • Understand the political and economic forces that drive and have driven Central Americans from their homes, and how U.S. immigration policy interfaces with these forces
  • Hear from immigrant youth organizers who participated in a weeklong border delegation to Tijuana, Mexico in the fall 2018 and met with migrants heading north and groups supporting them
  • Learn about local efforts to support immigrants, and how you can support migrants in Mexico who are fleeing for safety

Target Audience

Individuals who are interested in immigration, immigration history and current US policies effecting immigration from other countries.
