A conversation about Honduras’ Corruption

Honduras has used their electoral power to create an extractive system for the benefit of an elite few while forgetting about autonomous indigenous communities in Honduras. This webinar will show how these indigenous communities have been impacted by the actions from the Honduran government, The Narcos, and the U.S government making these indigenous communities worse off economically, socially, security wise, and see how they became the “forgotten” society in Honduras. Panelists will discuss their experiences working directly with these communities in Honduras and explain more in depth consequences of corruption from the Honduran government and other parties involved in these indigenous communities.
The event will take place online via zoom on April 13th at 6:30 p.m. The registration link will be on the bottom of this description.
This event will feature guest speakers Kendra McSweeney, Ph.D., professor of Geography at Ohio State University, and Edgardo Benitez, president of IFCA (Instituto para el Futuro Común Amerindio.) The panel will be facilitated by JCU student Sebastian Coronado, who will also provide English translation for Mr. Benitez’s presentation.
