 About the speaker:

We have the opportunity to meet Daira Quinones Preciado, a leader in the Afro Colombian displaced movement, who will share her community's story of displacement due to drug war fueled conflict in Colombia. Daira is a musician, storyteller and community organizer who was forced from her home by gunmen. This is an excellent opportunity to bring light to Colombia's internally displaced (the largest in the world) and connect the dots between military policy and the failed drug war in the U.S. and Latin America.

 You can see a video of Daira here: http://witnessforpeace.org/daira
