“Peace of Art: Mobilizing Art for Justice on the U.S.-Mexico Borderland”
4:00 – 6:00 PM • Location will be announced
Co-sponsored by Dartmouth Latin American, Latino and Caribbean Studies and The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences

The El Paso and Cd. Juárez borderland region is one of the largest binational metropolitan areas in the world. The war on drug cartels declared by the Mexican government in 2006 has brought a wave of violence to the region, specifically Cd. Juárez. The violence has gone beyond the cartels and the federal armed forces and now civilians are becoming victims of the violence. There is a sense of impotence among the citizenship. Artists on both sides of the border are raising their voices and demanding justice.
