Two decades after the end of a civil war that claimed 200,000 lives, the people of Guatemala still struggle with the human rights abuses committed by their military.

Today, she leads a nationwide program to educate civilians, police and the military on human rights.
ABOUT CYNTHIA GUERRA
A native of Guatemala, Cynthia Guerra grew up in relative comfort during the 36-year civil war, but when she was personally threatened with kidnapping, her illusion of safety was shattered. She decided the answer to healing her divided nation must lie in education. But even after earning multiple college degrees, it wasn’t until she began working in the office of the Ombudsman for Human Rights that she discovered the real solution. It was then she became a passionate advocate for bringing human rights awareness to the people of Guatemala, reaching all 22 departments (states) of Guatemala. For her work, Cynthia was awarded with the Human Rights Hero Award at the International Human Rights Summit at the UN headquarters in New York.
Cynthia Guerra currently serves as the president of Youth for Human Rights Guatemala and works with many government and educational sectors.
