Since October of last year, when large caravans of mostly young people and families from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador began moving through Mexico, María Magdalena Silva Rentería, known as “Sister Magda” began to organize humanitarian attention across Mexico for Central Americans and all who seek refuge. Sister Magda is the founder and director of the (CAFEMIN) shelter for women and children in Mexico City and Coordinator of a national network of front-line migrant defenders in Mexico ( Red de Documentación de las Organizaciones Defensoras de Migrantes (REDODEM). She rarely visits the US, due to her urgent and life-saving work on the ground. She will make just three stops in April: Chicago, Washington, DC, and Detroit.
