The Activist Mothers of Xalapa is a group of women in the state of Veracruz, Mexico who provide support for each other in a political struggle with a patriarchal and corrupt government that has allowed their children to be taken from them in custody hearings where false charges are often trumped up against them (Facio, 2013b). This movement draws upon the strong devotion or respect for mothers in Latin cultures and provides a space for mothers to share grief and to take action as a united group.
