Please join us for this compelling portrayal of Mr. Aristizabal's experiences as a political prisoner and torture survivor. In the 1980s, Hector was arrested and repeatedly tortured by the US-supported Colombian military. Following his release, his strident calls for justice and accountability made him an even greater target for government harassment, forcing him to flee his native country.

Today, Mr. Aristizabal uses participatory theater and dialogue as tools to increase public awareness of global human rights abuses. In particular, he has been a leading figure in the movement aimed at closing the School of the Americas.

Following his performance, Hector will engage the audience in a dynamic meditation utilizing Image Theater to challenge participants to imagine, and advocate for, alternatives to torture.

This event is co-sponsored by the American Friends Service Committee and the University of San Francisco's Human Rights Working Group.
