This booklet tells the story of bringing the Hostile Terrain 94 exhibit to our city of St. Louis. Just as the exhibit itself is a memorial for those who have lost their lives unnecessarily in the U.S.-México borderlands, this booklet is a memorial to the work of communities who fight for justice and human dignity in our world today. We hope that this document inspires the continuation of such work long after the exhibit itself is no longer in St. Louis.
