Gaspar Sanchez, human rights activist to speak

Gaspar Sanchez, human rights activist to speak

Unitarian Universalist Congregation of South County
23 North Rd
Kingston, RI  02879 Map

Witness for Peace and the Tomaquag Museum are pleased to present an evening with Gaspar Sanchez. Gaspar is a young gay, indigenous Honduran who will speak on promoting LGBTQ rights and defense of rights and land in Honduras. Gaspar will also speak on the USA's role in Honduras and what we can do here to promote justice in Honduras.
In 2003, Gaspar Sánchez dropped out of the fifth grade and became a full-time member of the Council of Indigenous and Popular Organizations of Honduras (COPINH) learning about its anti-patriarchal, anti-racist and anti-capitalist struggles from its beloved founder and indigenous feminist leader, Berta Cáceres. Since 2014 Sánchez has served on COPINH’s leadership team as the Sexual Diversity & Rights Equality Coordinator. COPINH is the first indigenous organization in Latin America to establish LGBTI issues as a pillar of its work. Sánchez also hosts a radio program, Los Colores de Wiphala, that discusses human rights with an emphasis on the LGBTI community. He leads community trainings on indigenous rights, territorial defense, and protecting Mother Nature’s common goods under siege by extractivist projects. He accompanies legal processes in support of indigenous humans rights defenders and against state actors and corporations that have committed crimes in Lenca territories. Sánchez is a popular educator with COPINH’s Tomás García Formation School which works to shape the next generation of young indigenous leadership. He also serves as a spiritual guide for the Lenca people in their collective efforts to recuperate historical memory through processes of life, land defense, and ancestral practices. Finally, Sánchez has represented COPINH all over the world from Mexico, Cuba, Venezuela, and Brazil, to the United States and the United Nations.
