Gabriela Minjares

Journalist at El Diario de Juarez, Mexico

Gabriela Minjares is an investigative journalist at El Diario de Juarez in northern Mexico. A veteran of 20 years at the newspaper, Gabriela specializes in covering issues related to corruption, urban affairs and public safety.

As Ciudad Juárez became the most dangerous city in the world in the period between 2009 and 2012, Gabriela was one of the journalists most involved in covering the wave of violence unleashed by drug cartels. She has covered in depth the impact the violence had in the city and its victims and is co-author of the book “Ciudad Juárez: A Border in Crisis”.

In response to the toll that violence also took on local journalists, Gabriela was a co-founder of the Juarez Journalists Network, a not-for-profit organization started in 2011 to promote solidarity, peer support and training among journalists. She currently chairs the Network.
She has a bachelor’s degree in Communications from the Universidad Autónoma de Chihuahua and a Master’s degree in Investigative Journalism from Florida International University.
