Democracy Fighters2018-2019

Ninety-two journalists have been killed in Mexico since 2000. Contrary to popular belief, these reporters did not die as the result of generalized violence. Instead, they were targeted. Their deaths cannot be understood without reading and listening to their work. Consequently, the worth of their journalism — and the risks they undertook — cannot be fully comprehended without understanding the rich context and history of the places where they lived, the social forces they faced, and the stories they told. Alejandra Ibarra Chaoul, a Journalist want to give these reporters’ work a home and provide that context so that “through this repository, their fight for democracy will continue.”
