TEDxPhoenix 2010 Margaret Regan - Just Coffee: Smart Solution to the Tragedies of the Border

No matter where you stand on the politics of immigration, it is a tragedy that human lives are lost on the border. Immigrant numbers are going down, yet deaths are going up as immigrants must travel through more remote, dangerous areas. The single best solution, according to Margaret Regan, is to find a way for migrants to earn a living wage in their home country. One idea is Cafe Justo, a Mexican co-op that keeps the profits from coffee production in Mexico. The workers control the beans/means of production and keep the profits in Mexico. It's a win-win for border safety and the livelihood of Mexican nationals. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPhoenix, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPhoenix event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
