[HOUSTON, TX]On Tuesday July 19, 2022 at 7:30 am at FIEL Headquarters ( 6610 Harwin #214 Houston, TX 77036) FIEL Members and Community leaders will gather to caravan to San Antonio to Deliver 53 crosses to commemorate the deaths of 53 migrants in the back on an 18 wheeler.
"This is the worst tragedy of its kind in U.S. History. We must not normalize these tragedies otherwise we become immune to the suffering of our fellow human beings. We must not only remember these 53 souls that lost their lives but we must also make sure that we continue to advocate for more humane immigration policies so more brothers and sisters do not have to risk their lives crossing the border. We must do better, we must find common sense solutions to these broken systems. If not now , how many more lives will we have to lose to finally make a change?" – Cesar Espinosa FIEL Executive Director
