This description of Jesús Michel Cuen's work was prepared when Jesús Michel Cuen was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1991.
Jesus Michel is taking commitment to human rights beyond the small circuit of academics and activists. He's building what he describes as "a culture of respect for human rights" among the least-informed citizens that encourages and enables them to stand up against the abuses that have long been their lot.
