Luisella Preciado is a human rights defender and attorney with the FrayBa Human Rights Center. There, she accompanies indigenous peoples fighting for their rights as autonomous, self-determining communities. In her daily work she listens to and documents the dignified testimonies of people standing up for their rights and becoming subjects of their own history. It is with these powerful subjects of history that Luisella and her coworkers at FrayBa analyze the events within the surrounding political context to pressure governments and society to respect the original peoples of Mexico.

This event is part of a speaking tour organized by the Mexico Solidarity Network. More information is available at: http://mexicosolidarity.org/programs/speakingtours/walkingsubjectshistory0
