A free press is an essential element of human rights protection. Mexico is regarded as the second most dangerous country in the world for journalists who have been targeted and by criminal organizations and corrupt government officials fearful of independent investigative reporting. Mago Torres is a Mexican journalist and scholar whose work focuses on the right to information and data journalism. She is a co-founder of “2,000 Clandestine graves” which documents hundreds of grave-sites discovered across Mexico, and is part of the project A donde van los desaparecidos. This event is a part of our Eyes on Mexico speaker series.
