• Partnering: Denver Justice & Peace Committee

  • As a professor at the Korbel School and member of the Denver Justice & Peace Committee (DJPC), I have worked to bring DU students, faculty, and DJPC members for travel to Chiapas that combines on-site experiential learning with a commitment to protecting human rights. Here we are at the Universidad de la Tierra in Chiapas, a center of higher education for indigenous youth. From the back row: Rebeca Zuñiga, director of the DJPC; Anita Smart, director of Natik, our NGO partner in Chiapas; Rebecca Galemba, professor at JKSIS; and Gwen Murphy, DJPC member (front).
