On October 26 the ACLU of Washington will present two special events featuring Mexican poet and activist Javier Sicilia. An award-winning author and leader of 2011’s "Caravan for Peace" against the international drug war, Sicilia will speak about the potential impacts of Washington’s new marijuana law in Mexico and other Latin American countries, as well as new perspectives on immigration reform.

In the last six years, an estimated 70,000 people have died in violence related to Mexico’s ongoing drug war, including Sicilia’s own son. These events will offer an international perspective on Washington state’s new marijuana law through the eyes of a victim of the brutal violence perpetrated by the drug cartels. It will be a unique educational opportunity and rich cultural experience.
