PSYDEH has been awarded a prize by the Mexican federal election institution INE to produce elements of our two-year project plan with the objective of promoting indigenous women participation in Mexico’s democracy.
With this project, we will contract with 8 local-based, native women professionals and community organizers to pursue project goals between November 2016 to March 2017:
- strengthen the Women’s Regional Organization consisting of 20 native women leaders , five from each of the four municipalities;
- produce 10 workshops to train fellow native women on ways to increase women citizen participation in 48 communities throughout the Region; and
- produce the 3rd Annual Public Forum at which the Region’s native women leaders will share their novel regional development agenda with new government leaders from the four municipalities.
