José's story

José, 13, lives in Mexico. His dream is to live in a world where all children know their rights and their rights are respected, where there is equality, and everybody lives in peace. He was elected to be the DIFusor representative of 900 girls and boys from 67 municipalities during the 16th National Workshop of DIFusors on children’s rights. He has represented the children of his state on various occasions, and delivered speeches at schools and communities across the state about violence and the family. José hopes that eventually everyone will respect the rights of others.
