Southwest Network for Environmental and Economic Justice

The Southwest Network for Environmental and Economic Justice (SNEEJ) acts in support of an awareness and accountability campaign surrounding the deaths of women in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. The campaign's call to action came out of the 2001 cross-border actions by the Southwest Network for Environmental and Economic Justice in Matamoros, MX/Brownsville, TX, Palomas, MX/Columbus, NM, and Albuquerque, New Mexico. Southwest Network affiliates also participated in and supported the "Exodus for Life, Not One More" march in Ciudad Juarez, coming together to organize a march where over 500 people participated to demand justice for the victims and their families and erected a monument to the murdered and missing women. This monument stands at the Paso del Norte international bridge between El Paso and Ciudad Juarez. At the October 2002 cross-border Mobilization in El Paso/Ciudad Juarez, the demand for accountability was echoed by the over 600 participants as they paused to remember the women.

"Una cosa es vestir y alimentar a nuestras hijas, sin embargo lo esencial es enseñarles que otras personas — fuera de ellas mismas — son tambien importantes. Lo mejor que pueden hacer con sus vidas es dedicarlas al servicio de los demás."

"Giving kids clothes and food is one thing, but it's much more important to teach them that other people besides themselves are important, and that the best thing they can do with their lives is to use them in the service of other people."

--Dolores Huerta
