Please join us for a panel discussion at the University of Ottawa featuring four women human rights defenders from Mexico who are visiting Canada’s capital on the eve of the Three Amigos summit. The women will deliver one key message to Prime Minister Trudeau and Presidents Peña Nieto and Obama: don’t sweep Mexico’s grave human rights crisis under the carpet! Panel speakers will update us on key human rights abuses in Mexico, and offer some solutions based on their grassroots experience working to end the violence.
