Fact-finding Mission on Women & Violence in Guatemala

JASS and our allies, accompanied by one of international human rights lawyers handling the Juarez femicide case, Rhonda Copeland, conducted a fact-finding mission, May 13-14, in Guatemala City. Several women’s and human rights organizations gave testimony, including CONAVIGUA, Moloj, Sector de Mujeres, and the Human Rights Commission. The Guatemalan Petateras organized a Forum on Violence at San Carlos University, where testimonies and facts were shared among international and Guatemalan feminists to shed light on the situation of violence in Guatemala.
