CCR Event Announcement

Dear CCR Supporter,

Tonight at 6:30 p.m. EST, CCR will host an important discussion on the U.S. “War on Drugs.” Please tune in tonight for the livestream of this critical discussion.

The Drug War has fueled mass incarceration and discriminatory policing practices in the U.S., as well as violence and militarization throughout Latin America.  This panel will bring together organizers and scholars on both sides of the border to talk about the domestic and international impacts of the Drug War and strategies to resist this racist, ineffective, and devastating “war.”  

Tune in tonight at 6:30 p.m. EST for the livestream of this critical discussion.

Tonight’s event will feature: Alfredo Carrasquillo, Civil Rights Organizer with Voices Of Community Activists & Leaders (VOCAL-NY); David Vivar, scholar on US drug war in Latin America and activist in the Honduran resistance movement, and Carla Garcia of the Organizacion Fraternal Negra Hondurenia (OFRANEH), a Garifuna human rights organization based in Honduras. The discussion will be moderated by Jaisal Noor, host and producer for The Real News Network, and feature introductory remarks by Vincent Warren, Executive Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights.


We welcome livestream viewers to participate in the conversation by sending questions to the panel by emailing askCCR@ccrjustice.org, by tweeting to the hashtag #NoDrugWar, or by asking question in the chat window of the livestream.  

If you are near New York City, please register here and join us in person!

Thank you for standing with us.

Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,
Vincent Warren
Executive Director
