President Enrique Peña Nieto presented the National Human Rights Award
On this occasion, the winners were Consuelo Morales Elizondo, the
director of Citizens in Support of Human Rights, while Sandra Jiménez Loza was
awarded Honorable Mention for her work in defense of the rights of children,
adolescents and persons with disabilities..
Their work inspires and engages us all.
The government therefore joins forces with civil society to make Mexico
a society of rights.
On the basis of reforms and public policies, it has expanded the
recognition of fundamental rights within the constitutional order while
strengthening its institutional capacity to ensure their exercise.
We now have innovative legal instruments to protect the rights of
victims, facilitate the repair of damage and improve access to justice, which
ratifies the government’s unwavering commitment to fundamental rights.
