Address:
Sunland Park-Anapra border fence, El Paso, TX, United States

Event will take place at Sunland Park-Anapra border fence, El Paso, TX. Peace and Justice without Borders is a coalition of border residents from the Paso del Norte Metropolitan Region (El Paso-Ciudad Juárez), concerned with the devastating violence against our brothers and sisters in Mexico, including victims who are students, youth, women, men and children. This peace demonstration and Day of Action is a call to end the injustices and unnecessary unprecedented violence that plagues our border communities but especially in Ciudad Juarez: tragic loss of human life, increased militarization on both sides of the border, massive population displacement, violation of human rights, and the need for immigration reform and political asylum to residents impacted by the border violence.
