Conversation with a PeaceMaker: Nancy Sanchez of Colombia
|Event Start Date||Tuesday, October 23, 2012|
Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice Theatre
|Event Start Time||12:30 pm - 1:30 pm|
The 2012 Woman PeaceMaker Nancy Sánchez of Colombia will be presenting on her work as part of the IPJ Women PeaceMakers Program.
A journalist by training, Nancy Sánchez has been documenting human rights abuses and the survival strategies of everyday women and men for over two decades in the more than 40-year-long conflict in Colombia. Her work has taken her to remote and dangerous regions of the country: first to Magdalena Medio in the north and later Putumayo in the south. In the early 1990s, it was in one organization that Sánchez found her vocation. She states, “Everything I am and everything I have done in human rights I owe to what I learned in CREDHOS” — the Regional Committee for the Defense of Human Rights.
