Solidarity at the Border

An International Indigenous Women's Delegation to the US-Mexico Border

The Trump Administration has stepped up its assault on immigrants, refugees and Indigenous Peoples. 

In response, we brought a delegation of Indigenous women from all across the world — our partners from Guatemala, Nicaragua, Kenya, Nepal and Cameroon — to the US-Mexico border. These are women who know well what it means for communities and Indigenous territories to be separated by borders. They have seen the devastating impacts when families are forced to flee by poverty, violence and climate change, compelled to seek safety far from home.

And they came together with Indigenous women and leaders in Arizona to exchange experiences and solutions. The video below captures highlights of that visit.
