I feel proud because I'm leaving a message [to the youth] about not going to war. That war is not the path. That life, that dialogue is the right option.

Leyner Palacios Asprilla

SOCIAL LEADER AND SURVIVOR OF 2002 BOJAYÁ MASSACRE

On occasion, people that have lived through the conflict, simply want to speak and be heard. Be able to say and transmit, ‘Look, this happened to me. I’m living through this. I feel pain because of this.’ Just listening sometimes comforts people.

We are contributing to keeping Colombia a pluriethnic and multicultural country. But above all, we are guaranteeing the permanence of Black communities, of ethnic communities, in Colombia.

We can recover our culture, and we can provide more peace for the youth. We can achieve the right to education, we can have better access to all and not just some, in short.
