Register to join the Caravan for Peace
Javier Sicilia and Mexico’s Movement for Peace with Justice and Dignity will lead a caravan across the United States this summer, calling for an end to the drug war. The caravan will begin in San Diego this August and will visit two dozen U.S. cities on its way to Washington, DC.
Read Javier Sicilia's invitation urging you and U.S. organizations to take part in this historic caravan.
The Caravan -- led by victims of Mexico’s drug war who have transformed their losses into moral, courageous, and compassionate action -- will be joined by drug war victims north of the border who also seek peace and an end to the absurd and tragic consequences of drug prohibition.
Javier Sicilia, the poet whose son and a group of friends were smothered to death last year, has played a crucial role in building the movement for peace. He has engaged the media and state institutions while leading major caravans to both the north and south of Mexico—visiting and bringing light in Mexico’s most damaged cities and regions.
