The Lewis Center brings influential leaders from throughout the hemisphere to San Antonio as part of our work to broaden perspectives and ready students to be enlightened citizens of the world. This year's Lewis Center signature event features Nobel Laureate Rigoberta Menchú Tum, a Mayan K’iche’ woman, activist, and social justice advocate from Guatemala who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her work in 1992. 

A special introduction will be given by Emmy winner, storyteller, culture writer, literary editor, and documentary filmmaker Sandra Guzmán. Her work reclaims and centers narratives of people and communities outside the margins and explores identity, land, memory, race, sexuality, spirituality, culture, and gender.


Tickets and sponsorhip opportunites for this event may be found H E R E. 


Sponsorship funds received will benefit a scholarship fund to help cover expenses of students participating in service learning and study abroad programs in Central America with a humanitarian or social justice focus.
