2019 ALICE ZACHMANN HUMAN RIGHTS AWARD Monday December 16
Deeply touched by her experience in Guatemala, Sister Alice Zachmann, SSND, worked with former missionaries and with Guatemalan refugees to found the Guatemala Human Rights Commission in 1982, with the mission of documenting and denouncing human rights violations in Guatemala and working for positive change.
Every year, GHRC recognizes and honors this vision with the presentation of an award to an outstanding organization working to promote and protect human rights in Guatemala. This year’s awardee is the Rabinal Community Legal Clinic, and the award will be received tomorrow by the clinic’s representative, Paulina Ixtapa.
Celebrate with us!
