Luisella Preciado is a human rights defender and attorney with the FrayBa Human Rights Center in Chiapas, Mexico. There, Ms. Preciado 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.
Ms. Preciado will speak on on-going Indigenous peoples’ struggles for autonomy and rights in Chiapas and other parts of Mexico.
In Spanish with English interpretation.

The Chiapas Support Committee (CSC) is a grassroots collective based in Oakland, California. The CSC serves as a center for education and information about Chiapas, the Zapatista communities and Mexico.
We have worked with Indigenous Zapatista communities since 1998 to support and accompany their process of constructing autonomous (self-governing) institutions such as health care, education and economic production.
The Chiapas Support Committee is a member collective of the Omni Oakland Commons, a group of collectives that share work and event space. We organize forums and other events and activities to share and discuss ideas, analyses and human rights issues related to the Zapatista communities, Mexico and the U.S.
