Description:

Since 2006, drug trafficking organizations (DTOs) have contributed to over 60,000 deaths in Mexico. Key civic institutions such as the police and the army have been compromised by the DTOs' activities. Yet U.S. opinion leaders and foreign policy officials have virtually ignored this profound challenge, despite the two countries' extensive geographic, economic, and cultural ties. Speaker Evelyn Krache Morris (Ph.D., MBA) will explore possible reasons why the DTOs receive so little attention and the potential ramifications of this neglect.

Please join us! Coffee and tea provided. Everyone is welcome, but admittance will be on a first come–first served basis.
