Since October, I've been working in Guatemala as a human rights accompanier with the Network in Solidarity with the People of Guatemala (NISGUA). Getting to know and work with our Guatemalan partners has taught me about the importance of transnational relationship, and NISGUA's grassroots network continues to affirm the power of many people organizing in their various corners of the world for collective liberation. Join me in fundraising to sustain this work through our May Match Campaign!
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.
