In addition to serving as the Vice President of Prorsus Capital, Salinas is a general coordinator of Movimiento IN LAK’ ECH por la Paz, A.C. (IN LAK’ ECH Peace Movement) in Mexico, a "civil initiative seeking to restore peace in Mexico by strengthening its society to transform violence with compassion."

Promotor of Civil Peace and an end to Corruption

Aside from his professional career, Salinas has arisen as a staunch voice against violence and corruption in Mexico, and he offers that the culture of self victimization is to blame for the plight of Mexico in 2011. It is his belief that if Mexicans were proactive through the use of Civil Resistance, they would have the power to overthrow the regional subjugation of the large drug cartels. He describes and suggests solutions to these problems in his four levels of response against violence:

4 levels of civil response against violence
  • Denial and Apathy
  • Fear
  • Courage
  • Non-Violent Action
  • Salinas believes that Mexicans are in denial about the state of their country, and describes this as the first and most sedentary level of response. Although Salinas mentions rage as an important step in combating violence, he is a student of non-violent resistance, and believes that the Mexican people should channel their rage into pacific activism. Salinas references the kidnapping of Eric LeBaron, to illustrate the power of Mexican civil response, and with it a challenge to the clandestine political voices of Mexico to begin recognizing these problems and implementing solutions.


    In 2011, Salinas participated in the TEDxSanMigueldeAllende conference in which he discussed issues such as the current climate of violence in Mexico and how Mexican society responds to it. During the talk, Salinas called on ordinary citizens to move from denial and fear to peaceful, community-based action. This is the first talk posted on that was delivered in a language other than English (it does have English subtitles).

    Patronage and publications

    Salinas has been involved as producer of acclaimed theater productions, such as Sicario. He has also collaborated in literary productions, like the book on addictions by Luis Eugenio Todd. An essay on corruption co-authored by Salinas, entitled " The Organization of Corruption: Political Horizons and Special Interests", won the First Prize of the 2006 Research Competition on Corruption organized by Mexico's Office of the Comptroller (SFP) and National Autonomous University of Mexico.
