Defending Defenders: A Discussion with Mexican Human Rights Defenders

Join the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA), the Latin America Working Group Education Fund (LAWGEF), and Peace Brigades International (PBI) to discuss the risks and challenges they face in their work to address critical human rights issues impacting their communities: torture, forced disappearance, kidnapping and violence against migrants, human trafficking, and the impact of the “war on drugs” on Mexico’s social fabric. PBI also presents its latest video and publication on the threats facing human rights defenders across Mexico and discusses what the U.S. public can do to help.
