Justice Delayed in Turbulent Times: Psychology and Wellbeing Toward Liberation
A 31st Anniversary Commemoration. Presented by Grassroots International & The Ignacio Martín-Baró Initiative For Mental Health & Human Rights
This past September, Spain’s highest court convicted one of the intellectual authors who ordered the murder of Ignacio Martín-Baró and his companions in El Salvador in 1989. On the heels of this much-delayed moment of justice, hear from activists, scholars and human rights advocates from around the world. Please join us via Zoom to learn more about the psychology of liberation, as well as ongoing community resistance, resilience and wellbeing work in an era of relentless trauma.
The online panel is organized by the Martín-Baró Initiative for Wellbeing and Human Rights at Grassroots International (previously the Martín-Baró Fund), which has provided much-needed funding to support community health and wellbeing, particularly among those severely harmed by political repression, structural violence and social injustice.
Panelists and Speakers include:
- Michael Reed Hurtado, Director of Governance and Operations of The Guernica Centre for International Justice, a Colombian/US lawyer and journalist with over 25 years of experience in the fields of human rights, criminal justice and humanitarian action, mainly in Latin America, with sporadic work in Asia and Africa.
