Argentina's Dirty War lasted for several years, ended in the early 1980s. Yet the work to find justice for the thousands of disappeared, murdered, tortured, and terrorized continues today. Join us to hear one of the victims and leading advocates for justice, Patricia Isasa, currently a member of the Argentine truth commision.

Argentine torture survivor Patricia Isasa fought for Justice and transparency for 32 years. Patricia was abducted by the military and police in her native Argentina when she was only 16 years old. She was tortured and held for over 2 years at one of the 375 clandestine detention and torture centers set up during the dictatorship. Unlike so many of the disappeared, Patricia survived and was released turning to a life of seeking justice.
