As my accompaniment assignmnent here in Guatemla is coming to a close I hope you can help me fundraise for NISGUA! This experience as an accompanier wil forever impact my future. I want to do everything I can to make sure others can have such an experience, and to ensure that NISGUA can continue building this cross-border movement.
Together, we have a special opportunity to double our impact in May and raise $70,000 to sustain a decades-long project in cross-border solidarity! Can you help me reach my goal?
About NISGUA: The Network in Solidarity with the People of Guatemala (NISGUA) works in the U.S. and Guatemala to strengthen the global movement for justice, human dignity, and respect for the Earth. Formed in 1981, at the height of Guatemala’s Internal Armed Conflict, NISGUA’s network today is comprised of thousands of people across the U.S. who demand justice, challenge corporate-led development, and push to change current U.S. policies. Using strategies that include international human rights accompaniment, digital organizing and communications, horizontal exchange, rapid response activism and advocacy, and campaigns, NISGUA builds mutually beneficial, cross-border networks to support social and environmental activists in Guatemala.
