The Stop US Arms to Mexico project seeks to contribute to a substantial reduction of US legal arms sales and illegal gun trafficking to Mexico. Specifically, we aim to reduce US legal gun sales to Mexico to pre-Merida Initiative (2007) levels in order to reduce a central contributor to growing violence experienced by communities and migrants in Mexico. The project is a collaboration of Global Exchange in the United States and the Mexican Commission for the Defense and Promotion of Human Rights in Mexico.

Stop US Arms to Mexico has a coordinator, John Lindsay-Poland, and an advisory board of 17 persons.
