Register for the Skills Training Pre-Encuentro
of the Stop U.S. Arms to Mexico Project
Thursday, November 15
Build your skills, meet other amazing activists from Mexico and the United States, and get involved in actions to stop the deadly gun trade from the United States to Mexico. Workshops will be led by Mexican and U.S. human rights defenders, migrant leaders, researchers, and advocates and build our capacity to work with media, advocate for policy change, conduct research, engage in effective cross-border activism, and more. We will have the opportunity to apply some of those skills right away during the Border Encuentro, which immediately follows the training day, November 16-18, organized by School of Americas Watch.
The day will begin at 9:00 a.m. at the Americana Hotel in Nogales, AZ, and go until 6:00 pm. Lunch and snacks will be provided. There is no fee to participate in the training, but registration is required. This registration is for Thurs. Nov. 15 only. (To register for the rest of the Border Encuentro, sign up here.)
Yes! I am signing up for a full day of skills workshops on Thursday, November 15.
