Sangre Mia/Blood of Mine

The title of the anthology Sangre mía / Blood of Mine Poetry of Border Violence, Gender and Identity in Ciudad Juárez pays homage to writer, social activist and media blogger, Susana Chavéz, who was best known for coining the phrase “Ni una muerta más” used in the social campaigns against femicide in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. In January 2011 Susana fell victim to the very violence she denounced when she was brutally murdered. Her mother laid Susana to rest with a copy of “Blood of mine”, the only poem Susana published while alive, whose title she later changed in her blog spot to “Blood of ours”.

The editors of the anthology Sangre mía / Blood of Mine, Rojas Joo and Rathbun, will share Susana’s message of peace in their presentation and reading from this bilingual collection of fifty-three poets whose verses denounce violence committed against women along the U.S. – Mexico border region of Ciudad Juárez – El Paso, TX.

Presented by the CAS Symposium Against Indifference
Co-Sponsored by Department of Foreign Languages
