Meet María

María Vieyra works as a lawyer at Jesuit Migrant Service. She is part of the Southern Border Team in Spain

Why do you think the work of JRS is relevant today?

Because JRS focuses its work where there is oblivion. Because it tries to ensure dignity where there is abuse and light, where there is pain and hopelessness. This is why the work of JRS is so relevant today.

How does your work/activity contribute to JRS mission?

My contribution as a lawyer is focused on Human Rights recognition and compliance for migrants and refugees, especially on violation contexts in the Spanish Southern Border.

What does JRS mean to you?

JRS is an example of a different way of doing things: the culture of hospitality must be the guidance for European migratory policies.
