WOLA: Advocacy for Human Rights in the Americas
Program Theme

Human Rights in Mexico

Security forces that violate human rights are rarely punished in Mexico. Ongoing dependence on Mexico military forces to carry out public security functions has also led to human rights violations, as does the weak accountability mechanisms for the police and other security forces.

WOLA works with Mexican human rights organizations to support their work and monitors threats against human rights defenders. We advocate for justice on individual cases that have implications for human rights policy.
