I first met Daira Quiñones, a courageous community leader, when I interviewed her for the National Days of Action for Colombia. She shared with me a pain so raw and an insatiable commitment to justice so deep that it permeates every facet of her being. Even in the face of threats against her own life and the brutal murders of the most important people to her, she is not silenced—she continues to speak out against the assaults on humanity. Since hearing her story, I have not been able to get it out of my mind. I hope that you can’t forget it either. Do not let her stand alone.
