Freedom is the Future: Activists Tell Their Stories

About the Project

May 26, 2016
Freedom House

To celebrate Freedom House’s 75th anniversary, Blue Chalk traveled to Mexico and Kenya to film a short documentary profiling human rights defenders.    

In Monterrey, Mexico, we followed Sister Consuelo Morales, who has dedicated her life to seeking justice for Mexico's Disappeared. In Nairobi, Kenya, we followed a photojournalist and activist, Boniface Mwangi, who fights for the respect of human rights and freedom of expression.   

Freedom House, an independent watchdog organization dedicated to the expansion of freedom and democracy around the world, has partnered with Morales and Mwangi in order to amplify their voices and support them in their very important work.

Although Morales and Mwangi are working in completely different environments, they are both taking a stand against injustice and are empowering people around them to reclaim their most basic human rights.
