Alejandra Ancheita, a Mexican human rights lawyer, bravely fights for social justice and human rights in her country–following in the footsteps of her activist father, who died under questionable circumstances on her eighth birthday.
She founded ProDESC, an organization that fights for economic, social and cultural rights and which is a Solidarity Center partner.
Ancheita regularly receives death and other threats for her support for vulnerable people in her country including as a direct result of her work to support workers and community members trying to win justice from a Canadian mine company in the state of Durango.
Her story is featured on Moral Courage TV.
