  • DC Honduras Awareness Tour - Feb 22

    February 22, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    1730 Pennsylvania Ave NW #700, Washington, DC 20006

    The unravelling of democracy in Honduras has worrying implications for both regional stability and the future of Honduran communities living in the United States. On January 27, Juan Orlando Hernandez took a controversial oath of office for a second term as the President of Honduras following fraught elections, allegations of fraud, a muzzling of media in the country, and state-backed violence against protesters that has left more than 30 people dead.

    Despite calls for a new election from the Organization of American States (OAS), the United States has endorsed the results. Meanwhile, even as the US Department of State has called for US citizens to avoid travel to Honduras, the US government has deported some 700 people to the country since January 1, and may well cancel Temporary Protected Status for Honduras this spring, potentially placing 57,000 fully vetted, work-authorized people in deportation proceedings.

    WHAT:
    Alianza Americas will bring a Honduran journalist and a Honduran human rights advocate to the United States for dialogue with government, community, faith, and international leaders in the three US cities—Los Angeles, New York City, and Washington, DC—where the most Honduran immigrants voted in the country’s fraught elections in November 26, 2017.
    WHO:
    Honduran guest speakers will share on-the-ground perspectives of events leading up to and following the country’s controversial elections, linking with US-based leaders in collective action to advance democracy and protect Honduran diaspora.
    • Joaquin Mejía is a commentator on Radio Progreso, a Jesuit radio station that has been attacked in the aftermath of the elections.
    • Claudia Mendoza is a highly regarded freelance journalist and documentary producer who has served as a Univision correspondent for nearly 20 years

  • Runaway Inequality Workshop

    March 10, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:45 pm
    Morris County Library NJ

    Runaway inequality is now America’s most critical economic fact of life. In 1970, the ratio of pay between the top 100 CEOs and the average worker was 45 to 1. Today it is a shocking 829 to one! During that time a new economic philosophy set in that cut taxes, deregulated finance, and trimmed social spending. Those policies set in motion a process that greatly expanded the power of financial interests to accelerate inequality.

    Virtually all the key issues that we face―from climate change to the exploding prison population―are intimately connected to rising economic inequality.

    The Runaway Inequality book and workshop call upon us to build a common movement to tackle the sources of increasing income and wealth inequality. The problem will not cure itself. It will take enormous energy and dedication to bring economic justice and fairness back to American society.

    Join us for this workshop that shows the reality of modern economic inequality, how we got here, and how bad it is. Then learn about the movement for eco-socialism, to overcome this unjust system and create an economy based on people, not profit.

    This public event is open to all but seating is limited. Please RSVP.
