Meet: Carlos Quesada, Global Rights' Latin America Program Director
Carlos Quesada, Global Right's Director of Latin America Programs was thrilled when the U.N. announced that it was going to declare 2011 as the International Year of People of African Descent. Carlos has been working to combat racial and ethnic discrimination against Latinos of African descent for 7 years at Global Rights.
"Having the U.N. declare 2011 the International Year of People of African Descent makes Global Rights' work with its partners even more urgent because it helps shine a spotlight on the problem of discrimination based on race in Latin America," said Carlos. "It is an opportunity for Global Rights and its partners to get governments in the region to recognize once and for all that racial discrimination exists and to act in concrete ways to end it."

Over the years, Carlos has been very effective in building strong relationships with local partners in countries like Brazil, Peru and Colombia, among others, to help build their capacity to advocate for human rights and to end discrimination based on race. This year, Carlos will support Global Rights' partners in Peru to produce a report on the human rights difficulties that Afro-Peruvians face in their communities.
In Brazil, he will work with the Network of Afro-Brazilian Women to produce a report on discrimination against women in the labor market. Carlos will also work with Afro-Colombian communities to raise awareness about the racism and racial discrimination that internally displaced Afro-Colombians face due to internal conflict in the country, and will help partners to pressure the Colombian government to implement a landmark decision by the Constitutional Court (Order 005/2009) on ways to solve discrimination problems faced by Afro-Colombians.
Global Rights' Latin America Program with Carlos at its helm will continue to work to increase access of Afro-Latino organizations to the Organization of American States and its different bodies as well as the United Nations Committee that oversees the International Convention on the Elimination of All forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD).
