November 6, 2009

Today we had the opportunity to meet with an education committee of the Center for Human Rights, This committee works with grassroots committees in a number of Juárez colonias (neighborhoods). It was a helpful experience for us to learn how the area is organized and how planning and outreach happens. At the meeting important human rights events were discussed including a city-wide December 10th event to celebrate the 51th anniversary of the United Nations Declaration on Human Rights. In solidarity with the City of Juárez we hope to organize events in Michigan on that day.

Since Sunday our team and Julia have been working 12-13 hours a day, so we taking the afternoon off.

Before closing permit us to share a chart regarding homicides in Juárez.
