Tlachinollan Mountain Human Rights Center (CDHM)


The Tlachinollan Mountain Human Rights Center (CDHM) is an organization founded in 1993 that promotes the rights of the indigenous peoples Na savi, Me'phaa, Nauas, Nomdaa, afromexicanos and mestizos of the Montaña region and the Costa Chica of Guerrero. As part of their work they accompany the peoples to create legal strategies that allow them to preserve their heritage, access justice and improve their living conditions. The CDHM has accompanied emblematic cases of human rights violations such as the Ayotzinapa case, the case of Inés and Valentina, and the case of Florencia Sánchez.


Human rights defenders (HRDs) and journalists in Mexico are subject to intimidation, legal harassment, arbitrary detention, death threats, acts of physical aggression, enforced disappearances and killings as a result of their activities in defence of human rights and the exercise of freedom of expression and journalism.
