Mexico’s Human Rights’ Award

Sr Consuelo Morales Elizondo receives Mexico’s National Human Rights Prize from President Enrique Peña Neto


On 10 December 2015 our Sister Consuelo was awarded the Mexican National Human Rights Prize. Her work with CADHAC (Civil Campaign for Human Rights) has enabled dialogue between victims, civil society and the State to promote the rights of the disappeared. This has been achieved because of the belief she has held for many years, that “Alone, we can do nothing… this requires a joint effort”. This is how CADHAC has succeeded in bringing together victims, civil society and lawyers to bring about the justice that Mexico so needs today.
