Since 1993, over 370 women have been killed or have "disappeared" in Ciudad Juárez and Chihuahua, Mexico. Many of the victims were raped and mutilated.
To date, the Mexican authorities have been slow to act in response to the horrifying pattern of violence that has become commonplace in Juarez and Chihuahua.
The International Community is gravely concerned about the safety of the women of Chihuahua. Please join Amnesty International in its efforts to persuade the Mexican authorities to take action now before the lives of any more women are lost. We must all urge the Mexican Authorities to protect its citizens.!
Sign this petition to the Mexican Ambassador to the United States. The message must be clear: violence against women must be tackled at its roots. All instances of it must be thoroughly investigated, those responsible brought to justice, and steps must be taken to address the causes of women's vulnerability to violence. SIGN NOW!

Since 1993, over 370 women have been killed and "disappeared" in Ciudad Juárez and Chihuahua, Mexico. Amnesty International has expressed its dissatisfaction with the response to date from Mexican authorities, and has expressed doubt about the commitment of authorities to end the horrifying pattern of violence that has become commonplace in Juárez.
Ambassador Bremer, we call on the government of Mexico to fully and promptly investigate the deaths and "disappearances" of hundreds of young women in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, and provide protection and justice for all in that community. All instances of violence must be thoroughly investigated and its perpetrators brought to justice, and steps must be taken to address the causes of women's vulnerability to violence.
