On October 10, 2012, sixteen-year-old José Antonio Elena Rodriguez was in his hometown of Nogales, Mexico when Border Patrol agent Lonnie Swartz fired 10 shots across the border and killed him. Since then, José Antonio’s family has demanded justice, including organizing monthly vigils, protests, and other actions, including legal actions. His family is one of the founding families of the Border Patrol Victims Network. On October 8 & 9, 2022, join us in accompanying the Elena Rodriguez family and the Border Patrol Victims Network in Ambos Nogales (Arizona and Sonora) to uplift the memory of José Antonio and countless victims of border militarization. We are grateful to the family of José Antonio for the invitation to stand in solidarity with them.
