Special Display: Hostile Terrain ‘94, The Undocumented Migration Project:

Debuting on September 17, visitors can check out “Hostile Terrain ‘94, The Undocumented Migration Project,” which will be on display until July 9 of 2023.

This multi-media exhibition records the journeys and testimonies of undocumented migrants and their families who attempt to cross the U.S.–Mexico border. It aims to raise awareness about the dangers and deaths happening regularly since 1994 as a direct result of the immigration enforcement strategy known as “Prevention Through Deterrence” (PTD) -- a policy designed to discourage people from crossing borders near urban ports of entry.  

Visitors will explore a range of multi-sensorial components that speak directly to the migrant experience, including photographic narratives of border crossers, found objects left behind by migrants in the desert, and a 20-foot-long wall memorial map of the Arizona/Mexico border with hand-written toe tags with QR codes that connect to online content, regarding migrant issues along America’s southern border.  

Together, the Colibrí Center of Human Rights, which is an organization that grew from the Missing Migrant Project, and the families of disappeared migrants work with those involved with this exhibit to find truth and justice, bring global awareness to this humanitarian crisis and inspire positive social change and immigration reform.
