Congratulations to Professor Zita Arocha at UT El Paso and the team she assembled to produce Mexodus,, which this weekend was named winner of the Online News Assn. Non-English Projects, Small/Medium

Mexodus, (Mexico / U.S.). A magnificent effort about a compelling news story almost no one else has touched. Read this project on flight of Mexican families from their homeland due to drug violence.

Mexodus | A Borderzine Project

Once a vibrant border city of almost two million persons, Ciudad Juárez has drastically changed. 7,000 murders have occurred because of the violence generated by the Mexican government’s failed war against organized crime and drug cartels.
