Please join Black Alliance for Just Immigration and the report Authors, S. Priya Morley, Arthur Helton Global Human Rights Fellow, NYU School of Law and Molly Goss, Transnational Family Case Manager, Institute for Women in Migration (IMUMI) for a briefing of the report.
“There is a Target On Us” describes the recent migration of Africans to and through Mexico, within a broader discourse of anti-Black racism in the country. The report provides an overview of how discrimination on the bases of race and skin color impacts Afro-Mexicans, Black migrants, and other peoples of African descent.
The report also highlights how African migration through Mexico has been impeded by the current Mexican Administration’s restrictive immigration enforcement. Within this context, the Report outlines the findings from BAJI’s interviews and additional interviews that the Authors conducted with a leader of the Assembly of African Migrants as well as service providers, including about the intersectional discrimination faced by African women in Mexico.
