CJA International Attorney Almudena Bernabeu to Speak at UNAFF Panel

On October 21, CJA International Attorney Almudena Bernabeu will be speaking at the 18th United Nations Association Film Festival. Bernabeu will be joining a panel on “The Justice of Reconciliation” at 5:45pm at Stanford University (free admission!). The panel follows a 4:30 screening of the film Burden of Peace, which documents the story of Guatemalan Attorney General Claudia Paz y Paz and her efforts to hold former Guatemalan president Rios Montt accountable for the genocide of 1,771 Mayan-Ixiles. CJA played a key role in the prosecution of Rios Montt and the film captures a moment where CJA awards Paz y Paz with the Champion of Justice Award at our Annual Dinner.
