Activate Labs is a peacebuilding organization and a translocal partner with Mismo Sol 901 in the work to support immigrants in motion and to abolish immigrant detention. Join Monica and her family for a Mexican popsicle and a chance to learn about the work Activate Labs does on the Borderlands and in the community through their Creative Trauma Healing Open Spaces, which combine art, peacebuilding, and trauma healing to support migrants in motion. She will share the Participatory Video they have developed with migrant refugees from El Salvador that documents their time during the migrant caravan and their fears and hopes for the future.
