    Crisis and Courage in Mexico

    Join Amnesty International and the Americas Policy Group for an evening of inspiring storytelling and solidarity with: 

    • Magui Quevedo and Martha Camacho of Mexico's National Movement for our Disappeared. Both women know first hand about the grave dangers of searching for loved ones who have 'disappeared'. In 2017, the Movement for Our Disappeared achieved the approval of a law against disappearances.
    • Alicia Bustamente, Otomi Indigenous rights defender in San Francisco Xochicuautla. Alicia and her community are involved in a courageous struggle to defend their rights against government attempts to build a highway that would cut across the community's ancestral lands, without consultation or consent.
    • Mariano Machain of SERAPAZ, a non-governmental organization that works for the peaceful transformation of social and political conflicts in Mexico. SERAPAZ supports victims of human rights violations who have come together to confront inaction or complicity by the state and created inspiring social movements to claim their rights.
