Women and the Work of Liberation in Guatemala
Across Guatemala, women are leading transformative movements for justice, accountability, self-determination, dignity, and respect for the Earth—and their work is making global impact. This April, we invite you to join NISGUA on our 2017 delegation to Guatemala to explore the dynamic strategies, resilience practices, and forms of organizing that Guatemalan women use to address the interlocking systems of capitalism, racism, and patriarchy while building visions for a world free from gendered violence, state repression, and environmental degradation.

This delegation will be a unique opportunity for organizations and individuals from the U.S. to engage in horizontal exchange with women-led social movements in Guatemala, while building capacity for organizing and advocacy across borders. Together, we will:

- Visit communities and organizations struggling for justice and accountability for crimes against humanity committed during the country’s internal armed conflict, focusing on the integral role that women play in forging paths toward justice while deepening our understanding of many meanings of justice, memory, and healing.

- Build an understanding of the ongoing impacts of U.S. imperialism in Guatemala and the strategies that Guatemalan communities use to build resilience and work toward social justice.

- Reflect on the importance of international solidarity and cross-border organizing, returning home better equipped to work for global social change from within the United States.

We invite participants with demonstrated, active commitments to gender justice to apply who are interested in developing an internationalist lens for their local work. We strongly encourage women, trans, and gender nonconforming people, queer people, people of color, and indigenous people, and working class people to apply to participate in this delegation.
