The Government of Nariño and the Ministry of Justice and Law are currently developing articulated work to implement and strengthen the Houses of Justice in the different municipalities of Nariño, spaces that not only act as conflict resolution centers, especially gender-based violence. , but also play a fundamental role as guarantors of effective law enforcement in local communities. García Figueroa emphasized that these institutions must become pillars of reference for the application of justice from the municipal bases, highlighting their importance in a department like Nariño, where there are significant challenges of conflict.

An early victory in this work articulated with the Ministry of Justice and Law is the declaration of the Municipality of Sandoná as the first “Protective Environment” in Nariño, which consists of this municipality not only being accompanied by the institutions providing the services to justice, but also has an active community committed to the eradication of violence in all its manifestations.
