Upcoming Speaker’s Tour

We are excited to announce the 2017 Witness for Peace Northwest speaking tour with Roberto Mendoza Pérez from Mexico’s National Network for the Defense of Human Rights (RNDDH).  His tour is entitled: Human Rights in Mexico: How US Policies Affect State Violence, Militarization, and Displacement.” This October Mr. Pérez will join WFPNW in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. RNDDH members are indigenous teachers, small farmers, students and elders, working in defense of their human rights, and facing repression by the Mexican government. Professional translation for all presentations will be provided.

Please join with us.  Contact Kris (kris@witnessforpeace.org) to help organize a tour event in your area.  We are looking for housing and meal hosts, event coordinators, partner organizations and contacts on college campuses.
