EOY-cropLast year we successfully deployed various strategies for promoting human rights in Guatemala. We provided detailed analysis of the human rights situation with a focus on women and other vulnerable groups. We monitored and reported on cases from the internal armed conflict and helped raise the profile of environmental struggles like La Puya. We successfully advocated for human rights conditions on direct funding to the Guatemalan military, and for a historic reparations package granted to communities affected by the Chixoy hydroelectric dam. We continue to provide emergency and long-term support to human rights defenders and communities across Guatemala.

Please help us work to meet the ever-increasing need for actions and policies that promote human rights. Thanks to a generous donor, your donations will be matched when you give before the end of the year.
