The Mexican human rights organization ProDESC works to protect the rights of Mexico’s marginalized communities. It was founded by Mexican lawyer Alejandra Ancheita, whose father was also human rights activist who died under suspicious circumstances when she was just eight years old. Ancheita joins us to discuss her work and the state of human rights in Mexico.
