School of the Americas Annual Vigil and Protest
Campus Ministry hosts its annual vigil and protest at the School of the Americas in Fort Benning, Georgia on November 21-25, 2013.
The School of Americas is a military training facility for Latin American soldiers. The graduates of this school have a strong history of torture, murder, and human rights abuses. Each November, on the anniversary of the death of six Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and her daughter at the hands of SOA graduates, tens of thousands of people gather at the gates of the SOA to protest and hold a vigil in witness to the atrocities that occur because of this school. This trip is one of several Justice Immersion Trips hosted by Campus Ministry. Learn more about the Justice Immersion Trips »
The application deadline for this trip is October 2, 2013.
