“Justice for My Sister” Webseries
Posted by NALIP on November 20, 2014
Justice for My Sister follows one Guatemalan woman during her three-year battle to hold her sister's killer accountable. She encounters many obstacles: a police record that is missing, a judge who is accused of killing his own wife, and witnesses who are too afraid to testify. In the end, Rebeca emerges as a leader in her community with a message for others: justice is possible.
The Justice for My Sister Collective is a co-ed, feminist, pro-immigrant rights organization that advocates for women's access to justice and gender equality. We currently have a chapter in Guatemala City and a Chapter in Los Angeles, California. We have identified organization throughout 20 countries who use our film and educational materials and toolkits to further their own local campaigns and promote gender equality using popular education techniques through the arts: film, theater, music, painting, oral history, and photography. www.justiceformysister.com
