Judith Pasimio

Judith Pamela A. Pasimio, Filipina, a mother, activist, women human rights advocate, works in solidarity with the indigenous women, and is currently the coordinator of LILAK (Purple Action for Indigenous Women’s Rights). At LILAK, she has led the organizing of indigenous women gatherings, both at the regional and national levels. These provide the compass of LILAK’s strategic support to their struggles.

Her work on land rights, access to natural resources and indigenous rights started when she worked as a campaigner with LRC. She also served as the Executive Director of Legal Rights and Natural Resources Center (LRC-KsK/Friends of the Earth Phils), whose main partners were indigenous peoples, struggling for their right to self-determination (2007-2011). She also worked with the Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD) on the Task Force on Rural Indigenous Women.
