Breaking Chains of Indifference


The Department of Student Diversity & Multicultural Affairs, in collaboration with SDMA Leader Mayra Martinez present:

"Breaking Chains of Indifference"
Wednesday March 2, 2016
Regis Hall MPR

We created dialogue around the social injustices that occur as a result of drug violence and work exploitation of migrant workers in Mexico, specifically the drug capital of Culiacán in the state of Sinaloa. We also addressed the impact of work exploitation on children and the living conditions of migrant families. The effects of the drug cartel on the citizens of this city were portrayed through testimonies, pictures, and videos.


The Department of Student Diversity & Multicultural Affairs, in collaboration with Campus Ministry present:

"More Than A Border: Looking at the Realities of Immigration/Migration"
Wednesday March 30, 2016
Damen MPR North

As participants of the Tucson/Agua Prieta Alternative Break Immersion, we would like to communicate what we have learned through our experiences and inform attendees of how students can stand in solidarity with populations affected by immigration policies and regulations. We will discuss the key laws and policies involved with immigration, provide a deeper look into how these regulations affect migrants and border towns, talk about the humanitarian aid groups we met through our ABI, and offer resources and options regarding immigration reform here in Chicago. By discussing key immigration laws/policies, personal testimonies, and humanitarian aid groups we encountered, we hope to shed light on the importance of not only understanding, but also taking action to change how this social justice issue affects the lives of millions.
