Lessons from the fight against sexual violence and State repression in Mexico

Join us for a conversation with Italia Méndez of the Campaign against Political Repression and Sexual Torture presented by the Mexico Solidarity Network. Among other things, Italia is a survivor of the systematic sexual torture committed by Mexican police in the town of Atenco in 2006. By being a fighter for social justice, an educator, and a source of hope, she has been able to overcome this crime and create tools for resisting the repressive strategies of the State and repairing the social fabric.
