The Movement for Memory in Mexico

Movements for memory can take many forms – from campaigns that advocate for national policies and laws to more spontaneous gatherings of activists that incorporate civil disobedience and other types of non-violent direct action. On April 20th, join our next Conscience Matters webinar, as we explore the synergies between these strategies through the context of Mexico, where families of the disappeared, memory practitioners, and other activists have spent years amplifying the vital role of public memory and countering harmful government narratives through multiple channels. The webinar will bring together key figures involved in these movements to discuss the many ways public memorials can be transformed, as well as the opportunities and challenges of creating memory laws in the country. The webinar will be conducted in Spanish with English interpretation.
