Culture of Peace

The Issue: Colombia

Colombia continues to suffer the consequences of an armed conflict that has lasted more than 50 years. We stand in solidarity with more than 3,000 Dominicans living and ministering in Colombia.

We pledge to:

Raise awareness of U.S. military policies and their consequences on the people of Colombia;
Lobby legislators to increase humanitarian aid, eliminate U.S. military aid, and stop aerial fumigation;
Urge the Colombian government to fulfill the recommendations of the 2006 report of the High Commissioner for Human Rights regarding the situation in Colombia;
Support demonstrations against the School of the Americas/Western Hemispheric Institute for Security Cooperation (SOA/WHINSEC) that are held in the U.S. and Latin America;
Review our investments and encourage shareholder advocacy in corporations.
