Skills workshop for accessing public information

Notes from the Field, Strengthening Rights to Access Public Info & Protect Personal Data


Pursuant to 2018 work promoting the rights to access public information and to personal data privacy, and nationally recognized 2016-2017 work promoting women participation in electoral politics, PSYDEH was selected Programa Nacional de Impulso flyeragain by the Instituto Nacional Electoral (INE) for a 2018-2019 project to sustain and scale impact in this area.

We use workshops, community radio spots, action learning exercises, and a regional public forum to educate indigenous women and their communities on how to use their rights to access public information and protection of personal data to make a social impact.

In so doing, we seek to deliver to INE a framework for a scalable educational model for empowering all of Hidalgo’s indigenous citizens to smartly know and use these rights. And, in PSYDEH fashion, we use photography and a short film to document our work as both a marketing and educational tool. *Photographs by PSYDEH staff and professional photographer Diogo Heber.





PSYDEH is a non-profit civil association, which was formed by the initiative of a group of young women from the municipality of Santiago Tulantepec in the State of Hidalgo. PSYDEH is committed to working with and for the most vulnerable communities in the region through the promotion of a Sustainable Human Development.
