Why are families willing to risk their lives to seek safe haven in the United States? What are they fleeing?
How can we address the root causes or
“push factors” of this migration crisis?
Join a conversation with Noah Bullock, Executive Director of Cristosal, the leading NGO working on forced displacement due to violence in the Northern Triangle countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras-countries from which the majority of families at our border are fleeing.
Cristosal takes a holistic, human rights-based approach that ranges from emergency humanitarian assistance for victims of forced displacement to strategic litigation that brings structural change so victims can count on protection and
assistance from their own governments.
