Ursuline Sisters’ trip to Honduras explored causes of migration

Ursuline Sister of Louisville Kathleen Neely joined a delegation of nearly 75 faith leaders and immigrant justice advocates on a trip to Honduras in late March as a “reverse caravan.”

“The international, interfaith delegation met with organizations working with and advocating for the rights of migrants and explored factors forcing migrants to flee,”   said an announcement from the Ursuline Sisters.

According to the announcement, those factors include “violence; environmental degradation; and the ongoing effects of the 2009 coup including drug cartels, organized crime, corrupt security forces and human rights violations.”

The delegation also met with the victims of the government-sponsored repression and with communities fighting displacement caused by industry in Honduras, the announcement said.
