our next event

June 25, 2020 from 1-2 pm EST

Hosted by the Center for American Progress.

Whether through illegal channels or through legal exports, the flow of U.S. guns has an impact on security and stability in Mexico and Central American countries. Often under-examined is how these weapons affect violence against women. In this webinar, experts will discuss how women in these countries face unique risks and challenges related to gun violence while also identifying policies and actions to address them.
