Caravan For Justice Comes To Wyoming
Laramie, Wyoming – The University of Wyoming was one of 56 stops across the country this week by the International Caravan for Justice in Juarez and Chihuahua. The Caravan is traveling across the US to educate people about the hundreds of unsolved murders and thousands of unsolved disappearances in the cities along the United States-Mexico border.
Mari Lou Andrade, a spokesperson for the Caravan for Justice, spoke to a crowd at the University of Wyoming about the need for support from Americans in bringing these crimes to light. Andrade's sister was one of the victims.
The Mexican government has not solved any of the more than 400 murders and over 4000 disappearances in which all of the victims have been female. The Caravan for Justice is calling for participation by people across Wyoming and the US to help put pressure on their government officials to demand an end to the murders. Mexicosolidarity.org is one of the organizations working to get Americans involved.
