Honduras has some of the highest femicide rates in the world, and rampant impunity fuels the crisis by perpetuating gender violence as acceptable. 1 Woman is Killed Every 16 Hours.

Honduras has one of the highest murder rates in the world, and members of the LGBTQ community — particularly trans women — are at especially high risk. COME AND LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS SITUATION.

Centro Presente Brings International Women’s Rights Activist Neesa Medina from Honduras to Boston as part of an educational tour on Women’s Rights.

All these activities are being supported by Alianza Americas.

A feminist sociologist, Medina currently works as Security and Gender Analyst for the Center for Women’s Rights (CDM) in Honduras. CDM fights to end violence against women in Central America. In Honduras, such violence is widespread, affecting women’s and girls’ lives in many ways. However, women-led organization like CDM are making positive difference, and since its founding in 1992, the organization has received significant recognition for protection of women’s right to political participation, labor protections, and freedom from violence. Neesa and CDM’s work is featured in “The Invisible Crisis: the Female Face of Forced Migration” a short documentary Centro Presente produced last year about the forced migration of Central American women.

Since 2014, Centro Presente has received hundreds of women and children from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. All of them were interviewed and most of them expressed that they made the decision to leave their countries due to the rampant and inescapable violence that confronted them in their countries of origin.

It is extremely important for us to educate the general public, and local and state policy makers about the situation of the alarming levels of violence, corruption and impunity in Central America.

Centro Presente is planning a series of activities with Ms. Medina in the Boston area over the course of a few days, including meetings with policy makers, media, panels discussions and community meetings.
