(Montgomery) -- A coalition of more than a hundred groups is sponsoring a 20 city tour in the U-S to push for an end to the U.S. War on Drugs... and Montgomery is on the schedule.
The Caravan for Peace with Justice and Dignity will stop in Montgomery on August 29th.
The coalition members say more than 60,000 people have died in Mexico from violence, many of them caused by the U.S. war on drugs. They want a dialog about alternatives to drug prohibition.
The coalition also criticizes immigration laws like Alabama's that they say "militarized the border and criminalized immigrants. These policies have generated a humanitarian crisis driven by unprecedented levels of deportations and incarceration of migrants."
Alabama's tough immigration law is the subject of multiple lawsuits.
