He National Polytechnic Institute and the Human Rights Commission of the State of Campeche (Codhecam) work on legal procedures so that the violence meter –graphic and didactic instrument designed by the IPN to visualize the different manifestations of violence-be translated into mayan languagein order to disseminate it in the indigenous communities of that entity.

The general director of the IPN, Arturo Reyes Sandoval, received the president of Codhecam, Ligia Nicthe-Ha Rodríguez Mejía, to evaluate the progress in the design and management of the Violentometer, which will contribute to raising awareness among the indigenous communities of that entity, about the importance of preventing the different manifestations of violence.

Rodríguez Mejía thanked the Polytechnic Unit for Management with a Gender Perspective (UPGPG) and the IPN authorities for facilitating the availability of the Violentometer as a tool for prevention and attention to violence in general and, in particular, against women and girls.

He explained that, currently, the authorities of the IPN and Codhecam manage a transfer of rights that allows the translation of the Violentómetro into the Mayan language.

“In Campeche there are more than 70,000 people who speak the Mayan language; 19.6 percent of the population speaks an indigenous language and the most widely spoken is the peninsular Maya.”

He reported that the Violentometer will be disseminated in Campeche by print and electronic media; In addition, the possibility of painting fences and the placement of canvases in public spaces and municipal seats is analyzed.

He maintained that the Violentometer is an instrument that all public servants who work in the defense of human rights know and hold in high esteem, because it is a kind and clear didactic tool that allows anyone to reflect on some practices or behaviors that may represent violence.

The director of the UPGPG, Elizabeth Cabrera Chávez, thanked Codhecam for turning around the Polytechnic and seeing the Violentometer as an opportunity for the communities of Campeche to get to know it.

He highlighted that the Violentómetro already incorporates the issue of digital violence and is recognized at the national level, as it is disseminated in educational institutions and the three levels of government, as well as internationally, as it is promoted in countries such as Germany and the United States.

The president of Codhecam presented the head of the IPN with a visual proposal for Violentómetro translated into the Mayan language, which incorporates the graphic identity established by the IPN and whose translation was carried out with the support of the Indigenous Language Directorate of the Campeche Secretary of Education. .
