Join a virtual conversation on Thursday, November 19, at 6:00pm PST/9:00pm EST with Washington state Poet Laureate Claudia Castro Luna, Justicia para Nuestras Hijas founder Norma Ledezma Ortega, and Seattle Times visual journalists Corinne Chin and Erika Schultz focused on the missing and murdered women of Mexico. ProPublica investigative journalist Vianna Davila will moderate.

Chin and Schultz–inspired by Castro Luna's book Killing Marías–traveled to Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, to report on violence against women on the U.S.-Mexico border. The award-winning Disappearing Daughters uses photos and video poetry to highlight the community of resilient mothers seeking justice for missing and murdered women.

Ledezma Ortega will share her experiences as a lawyer fighting for justice for her daughter, Paloma, and other missing women in Mexico. Castro Luna will read selections from Killing Marías and talk about her inspiration for the poem. 

Chin and Schultz, International Women's Media Foundation Adelante fellows and Pulitzer Center journalist grantees, will share their photos, video stories, and experiences from Juárez. A Q&A will follow the presentation.

This online virtual event will be simultaneously broadcast in English and in Spanish. It will be co-presented by The Seattle Times, the International Women's Media Foundation, the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, and Elliott Bay Book Company, with support from Humanities Washington.
