About the event

Highlands UMC is home to The Denver Justice and Peace Committee (DJPC), a grassroots organization that promotes human rights and economic and environmental justice through education and nonviolent activism to support communities seeking justice for all people.  As the DJPC Director, Rebeca Zúniga-Hamlin will speak about her passion for her work and her vision for a most just and equitable future. Rebeca was born in Nicaragua and grew up in both Nicaragua and Guatemala; from a young age, she has been committed to political action on behalf of the excluded by serving the poor and underprivileged. Her own mixed background – Nicaraguan Miskito Indian and white North American – has allowed her to commit to the long-term struggle for social justice, challenging unfair economic and criminal systems that affect the immigrant communities. She also has a keen understanding of the intersecting patterns of exclusion along dimensions of race, ethnicity, language, gender, immigration-status, and class. She and her partner Aaron and daughters Luna Serena and Sol Lilia live in Denver.
