Speaker Event: Thursday, October 18, 7 PM
Central Lutheran, and IMirJ, host Witness for Peace Northwest Speaker's Tour journalist and international award-winning filmmaker, Jennifer Avila, 7 pm Thursday, October 18th. Ms. Avila works with the Jesuit liberation theology center's Radio Progreso, courageously documenting the violent causes of emigration to the US, the murder of environmental activist Berta Cáceres, and the brave organizing of indigenous women. Her talk, “Silencing Dissent: How Freedom of the Press is Threatened in Honduras,” shows the hopeful role played by youth and women-led media in resisting the recent, illegal re-election of President Hernández, and the crimes against humanity committed by his regime. Ms. Avila continues filming how such US-sponsored politicians, and US business projects, crush the lives of Honduras' most vulnerable.
