“There is a Target On Us”

January 28, 2021

“There is a Target On Us” describes the recent migration of Africans to and through Mexico, within a broader discourse of anti-Black racism in the country. The report provides an overview of how discrimination on the bases of race and skin color impacts Afro-Mexicans, Black migrants, and other peoples of African descent. 

Please join and register here for a January 28th, briefing of the report Black Alliance for Just Immigration and the report Authors, S. Priya Morley, Arthur Helton , Global Human Rights Fellow, NYU School of Law, and Molly Goss, Transnational Family Case Manager, Institute for Women in Migration (IMUMI) for a briefing of the report.

This Report forms part of Mujeres Negras Migrantes en México (“Black Migrant Women in Mexico”), a research project on the experiences of Black migrant women entering, transiting through, and/or settling in Mexico.

Caravan starts at Leimert Park Plaza, stops at the Downtown Los Angeles Metropolitan Detention Center, ends at the San Diego Otay Mesa Detention Center. Refreshments provided.

Given the current administration’s exclusionary stance on incoming migrants and their particular targeting of Black migrants, we must continue being loud against rampant anti-Black and anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies! Immigrants are welcome here!

Can we count on you to join us in support of Black immigrants?
