Director Frey Offers Human Rights Workshop in Monterrey, Mexico

barbmex.jpgOn March 4th and 5th, Professor Barbara Frey directed a training program with Ciudadanos en Apoyo a los Derechos Humanos (CADHAC) in Monterrey, a city located in the Nuevo Leon region of Mexico. During the workshop, titled "Towards Human Rights Advocacy," Frey discussed tactics and strategies for peace in the defense of human rights. This workshop signaled the commencement of a program of activities undertaken by CADHAC for 2013, as the organization celebrates its 20th year of human rights work, an accomplishment that brings both excitement and frustration.

In the past two decades, CADHAC has made great strides in human rights in Mexico through its constant and dedicated work, but despite this, the human rights situation has continued to worsen throughout the country, especially in the last five years. CADHAC hopes that the contributions of leading human rights activists such as Barbara Frey will bring new perspectives and insights to its efforts, as CADHAC pushes forward in its demand for human rights.
