On June 4th, 2015, we co-hosted an event with grantee partner Front Line Defenders and El Centro de la Raza featuring Lucha Castro, an incredible Mexican human rights activist who works in Chihuahua to promote and protect the rights of women and offer legal and psychological support to women victims of violence.

Lucha is the subject of a fantastic graphic novel, “La Lucha: Lucha Castro and the Story of Mexican Human Rights.” (Verso)

Front Line Defenders works to protect and promote the rights of human rights defenders around the world, teamed up to write the graphic novel and get the word out about Lucha’s work and the situation for human rights in Mexico.
