The entire Haverford community is invited to welcome CPGC's Global Leader for Peace, Jorge Morales-Toj.
The CPGC’s Global Leader for Peace Program, established during the 2008-09 academic year, is designed to bring a scholar/activist to Haverford College with a view to contributing to the internationalization of our community. Activist Jorge Morales-Toj is spending the fall semester at Haverford College as our inaugural Global Leader for Peace. Mr. Morales currently works towards protecting the rights of indigenous peoples in Guatemala. Since 1996 he has worked for the National Coordination of Guatemalan Widows (CONAVIGUA) and founded its youth branch, MOHOMAYAS. As a survivor of the genocide of indigenous people during the Guatemalan civil war, Morales has been active in the establishment of a reparations program, and in ensuring that it never happens again. He has collaborated with Professor Anita Isaacs since 1999: he has visited Haverford College on several occasions and has been a mentor to generations of Haverford students who visited Guatemala.
