Geraldine Chacón / Venezuela
PERSECUTED FOR EMPOWERING YOUTH
Geraldine Chacón always dreamed of defending others. That’s why she helps empower young people in her home city to stand up for their rights. But she’s being hounded by the authorities just for trying to make her country a better place. They imprisoned her for four months and banned her from leaving the country. Her case still isn’t closed so she could be arrested again at any moment, with no warning.
