Dear members,
Following up on my previous emails, I’d like to take a moment to thank the members that have agreed to work collectively on this task and sent us contributions for a new CAWG collective submission in reaction to the draft elements for the

Alexandra, mil gracias por la carta y por la iniciativa. Con los sucesos recientes en México, no habíamos tenido oportunidad de revisar la carta, y seguramente ya se habrá enviado. De todas formas, desde ProDESC no queríamos dejar de sumarnos si aún es posible, y decirles que pueden utilizar nuestro nombre sin problema para la carta.

Hola, Alexandra, gracias por la carta.

Sobre este párrafo: (pág 1):

Estimados y estimadas,
La red Internacional de Derechos Humanos ridh se suma a la iniciativa , pueden mencionar nuestra organización en la carta sin reservas . No he leído la carta pero tengo entera confianza en ustedes. Si nos dicen donde está el texto para leerlo sería bueno . Seguramente la enviaron pero en medio de tanto mail no la encuentro .
