The Citizen Observatory (Observatorio Ciudadano) is dedicated to an inclusive and secure State of Oaxaca, Mexico. Observatorio Ciudadano welcomes constructive criticism that will provide solutions to problems and influence public policy in Oaxaca.
Through their website, dialogue is generated and discussion regarding government accountability, access to information and local governance is vibrant and progressive.
Additionally, Observatorio Ciudadano partners with the government initiative, Preven Chicos, aimed at strengthening youth safety and stopping violence against children. Public outreach materials encourage people to speak up if they witness any illegal activities and report events to the police. This group is an example of local participants uniting with the purpose of bringing about positive change in their community.
