For the first time in three years, Vital Voices is gathering in person for our annual Global Leadership Awards to honor women who are challenging the status quo, defying norms and disrupting systems. The event will take place at  the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, DC on November 9th.

As we plan our evening, we are reminded of all the trailblazers we’ve worked with for the past 25 years.

Meet 2019 honoree Saskia Niño de Rivera, a pioneering advocate creating a safer Mexico by transforming its prison system and reintegrating young offenders and children who are born and raised behind bars.
