Disappearances are not just a past human rights tragedy; they are an ongoing crisis in some Latin American countries. During Guatemala’s internal armed conflict, an estimated 45,000 were disappeared by state forces; family members continue to search for their loved ones and seek justice. Over 26,000 people have disappeared in Mexico since 2006, according to a government database. In Peru, the search for the disappeared continues after 15,000 people were disappeared during the internal armed conflict between 1980 and 2000. And in recent decades, over 60,000 people have been disappeared in Colombia, including 7,500 in 2012. Beyond the terrifying statistics, the impact of disappearances on families is profound: “To the torment of absence is added the sorrow of doubt,” in the words of Colombian scholar Alfredo Molano.

Come hear these four inspiring civil society leaders speak about the search for justice for the disappeared in Mexico, Guatemala, and Colombia.
