We can’t go to the border this year. We can’t go to the School of the Americas at Ft. Benning.

But we CAN gather –hundreds of us from across the hemisphere—to inform and motivate each other around our collective work:

 to end US-led and backed state violence

to dismantle Border Imperialism

to stand with communities in Latin America organizing against the militarization of their lands and lives

to fight against the neoliberal model that values profit over people and the environment

Mark your calendars now for the SOA Watch Convergence Nov 21-22, a weekend of workshops, a virtual vigil and more.   More details soon.

In solidarity,

Brigitte, Candice, Dévora, Pablo, and Roy
SOA Watch Collective


IRTF is inviting our friends to this event as part of our Memory & Resistance: 40 Years series .


Inspired by the martyrdom of Jean Donovan and Sister Dorothy Kazel in El Salvador in 1980, we uphold the legacy of these remarkable women and, in their spirit of solidarity, uplift the struggles of all oppressed peoples. Over the course of the next year, the Memory & Resistance Coalition will highlight, celebrate, and commemorate our collective legacies of resistance through an art exhibition, webinars, expert panels, spoken word and musical performances, public discussions, book discussions, and more.
