Nawal Benaissa / Morocco
Persecuted for her social justice activism
Nawal Benaissa speaks out for her region in Morocco, where many people feel forgotten by their government. She’s been on peaceful protests and campaigned on social media. But she’s been harassed by the Moroccan authorities and was given a 10-month suspended sentence for “inciting to commit an offense.” She just wants to be free to fight for the chance of a better life.
