Building Spaces for Change in Mexico
With over 349,300 cases of COVID-19 and 39,485 related deaths, Mexico has felt the harsh reality and impact of the pandemic. In Mexico, just like in other places across the globe, vulnerable communities are disproportionately impacted by this deadly virus. Not only are they at high risk, but they are not given the space to voice these concerns. How are indigenous communities impacted in Mexico? What are their predefined roles in society and how can this be changed?
Young peacebuilders Daniel Martín and Maria Francisca Garcés Ocampo of Centro de Colaboración Cívica (CCC) in Mexico dialed in on the Peace Corner podcast to discuss giving a voice to ethnic minorities, the presence of racism in Mexico and how spaces can be build for change.
