Commemorating Migrant Death: The Legacies of Violence at the Border
12:00 pm to 2:00 pm
Sponsored by:
Global Studies Center and Global Hub along with HT94 PGH

In 1994 the United States Border Patrol formally implemented the immigration enforcement strategy known as “Prevention Through Deterrence,” due to which at least 3200 migrants have since lost their lives in the Sonoran desert. Fill out virtual toe tags with Hostile Terrain 94 at Pittsburgh to commemorate these individuals. To acknowledge Indigenous Peoples' Day, a discussion will provide insights into how these deaths intersect with the murders and oppression of countless indigenous peoples during colonialism, and how colonialism still structures indigenous and migrant experiences today.
