Last week I had the opportunity to attend a hearing at the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. Latin America and human rights are very close to my heart, and I’ve worked with nonprofits who advocate in these areas for 5+ years. I’ve known of the Commission (IACHR) for a long time, but hadn’t attended any hearings before, so I figured it was time to go and see how this process works!

Thank You, Gael

Gael García Bernal

As far as I know, I was the only one in tears, but others wanted to be. There was something so sincere, so pure, and so passionate about Gael as he accepted the award. He spoke from his heart, giving voice to things that many of us believe but are afraid to say.
