She speaks on Colombia and Colombian grassroots peace initiatives before different audiences, translates for speakers from Colombia on tours through the US and gives media interviews on the subject. Jutta has many years of experience working for peace and justice, including more than four years in Chiapas, Mexico, where she coordinated civilian peace camps, and worked on media, outreach and analysis for the Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas Human Rights Center.
