On May 22 the Global Citizen Award will celebrate those among us across the globe who are taking action, leading with compassion, care, innovation, and working to uplift the world’s most vulnerable people.
The Global Citizen Award uplifts seven inspirational unsung heroes from across the globe. Now, the 2022 Mexico Award has been presented to environmental activist Mitzy Violeta Cortés Guzmán.
Mitzy works as a part of an indigenous collective Futuros Indígenas for climate justice and the environmental defense of her territory in San Sebastián Tecomaxtlahuaca, Oaxaca.
Mitzy attended COP26 in 2021, where she advocated for intersectional climate action with a delegation called the Last Defenders of the Earth. She is fighting to make sure that more people get involved in the protection of the earth.
Mitzy’s determination and achievements are inspirational. Send her a tweet congratulating her on her award.
