They also create and promote reinsertion programs for teenagers offenders and take on the legal defense of unjustly imprisoned people.
In this conference, Saskia Niño de Rivera spoke about how her convictions led her to defend the rights of women and children in their majority, being of particular interest to her due to the constant abuses in the prison system. Saskia also spoke about the importance of civil society organizations and social mobilization as the most feasible way to make structural changes in this country. She asked the students to be aware and not ignore that these issues exist.
Regarding violence against women, she added a drastic statistic that shows the actual situation in Mexico showing that 11 women die every day in the country due to aggression; and about crimes in general, 94% of them are non-reported and 6% of this that reach the authorities' records are intra-family aggression. At the same time, these are the least solved.
