Label from Border Crossings: Immigration in Contemporary Prints, La Salle University Art Museum, March 16 - June 9, 2016:

Alto a la Criminalizacion de Migrantes was created in 2011 for an “Immigrant know your rights” campaign that was put together by organizers here in Mexico and across the border in the U.S. Part of the purpose of the campaign was to fundraise for Mexican, Chicanos, and Spanish speakers from the U.S to attend the 2011 Allied Media Conference in Detroit, Michigan. We find it important for Latinos to raise our voice and be heard in the midst of an all-out war against our communities and communities of color throughout the US. Therefore we put together several workshops at the conference to share tactics and strategies on how to better protect our communities. Since people have welcomed this image well, two different versions of it have been used. One was for the Justseeds installation in the Pittsburgh Biennial at Carnegie Mellon University in the summer of 2011; and the other is in the new Justseeds portfolio on Immigration Issues.
