Remembering Our Cherished Colleagues, Ana Paula Hernández and Sally O’Neill

April 7 marks the first anniversary of the loss of our dear colleagues and the heart of our Latin America program: Ana Paula Hernández and Sally O’Neill. They were killed in an automobile accident in Guatemala, along with the Fund’s longtime driver, Daniel Tuc, and Ana Velásquez, a member of the indigenous rights group Consejo Wuxtaj.

As the messages in this memorial video attest, the loss of Ana Paula and Sally has been profoundly felt at the Fund and among the activists we support in the region, as well as throughout the broader human rights and social justice movements in Mexico and Central America. We must continue the fight for justice in their honor.
