Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2003
This description of Miguel Angel de los Santos's work was prepared when Miguel Angel de los Santos was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2003.
Miguel Angel de los Santos is organizing and training indigenous human rights defenders who were elected by their local communities in 13 regions of the state of Chiapas to deal directly with government agencies and courts so they do not have to depend on outside help from lawyers, NGOs, or church or government institutions, thus fostering their own empowerment.
