• From Shared Stories, Solidarity
      As an intern, I had the opportunity to attend GHRC's August delegation to Guatemala, titled Women in Resistance. In addition to meeting with different human rights organizations and the U.S. Embassy, we were fortunate enough to listen to the testimony of Ixil genocide survivors.

    On August 9th and 10th, I traveled to Omaha, NE, and had the honor to get to know the Comunidad Maya Pixan Ixim (CMPI).

She and her husband, Luis Marcos had invited me to participate in the first annual Omaha Celebration of the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples.

    Como todo en la vida, la cooperación internacional tiene diversas maneras de realizarse en nuestro país. Por ejemplo, existe la “falsa cooperación” que viene a imponer, a dirigir, a aplicar lo que sea sin importar los elementos de nuestra realidad diversa.

Despite the $6.34 billion in humanitarian and recovery funding from the international community that supposedly has already been disbursed in Haiti, reconstruction efforts still appear painfully slow in the eyes of many Haitians.
