Director Statement

In Mexico, one of the biggest crises that has been going on for a long time is enforced disappearance. even greater than the economic one, where the country keeps in suspense the social order and the psychic and mental development of children and adolescents.
In letters for the future, we give an account of the need for justice and the lack of empathy towards the families with missing members. The rupture of the family bond, the abandonment of children and adolescents by friends and acquaintances. Mexican society is going through a dehumanization where the habit of issues of violence take over from the mass media. The right to information and justice must be prompt and expeditious, without this the breakdown of society will be inevitable.
