Secretary

Sara is an Indigenous Nahua, co-founder of the interdisciplinary Centre for Research and Alternative Development, U Yich Lu’um A.C., where she works as a legal representative. She is responsible for the coordination of the Gender and Human Rights area, working with girls and women to strengthen skills, self-care and the improvement of their plots of land. She is also passionate about telling stories through documentaries that talk about socio-environmental issues. She shares her knowledge with young people through the creation of new narratives based on Mayan heritage, for the appropriation and defence of the territory. She is a member of the Network of Indigenous Women of Yucatan and feminist movements in which she fights for the recognition of Indigenous women’s rights in Mexico. Her most important role is being a mother of two daughters and a son with whom she learns about love and collective responsibility by cooking, planting the vegetable garden and taking care of farmyard animals.
