Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchú Tum to speak at East High

The public is invited to hear Nobel Peace prize winner Rigoberta Menchú Tum speak on March 27 at 6 p.m. in the Hawks Auditorium of East Aurora High School, 500 Tomcat Lane, Aurora.

Following the presentation will be a screening of the one-hour film “Daughter of the Maya” — a documentary of her life. Both the presentation and the film screening are free of charge.

Menchú Tum earned the Nobel Prize in 1992. In 1996, Guatemala’s 36-year civil war ended with a peace accord. Menchú Tum fought to have the Guatemalan political and military establishment tried in court, and ran for President of Guatemala in 2007 and 2011. She also established WINAQ, the first official indigenous-led political party in national history.

Rigoberta Menchú Tum has joined her sister Nobel Peace Laureates to form the Nobel Women’s Initiative, to shine the light on women and children’s rights around the world.

The presentation is hosted by East Aurora School District 131 and PeaceJam Great Lakes/Aurora.

For more information contact Sue-Z Bruno at or (630) 306-4415.
