Other U.S. Organizations Working on Colombia Issues
As the Colombian civil war claims thousands of civilian victims each year and US policy continues to focus on military aid to Colombia, there are voices for peace in Colombia as well as in the US. Yet, especially in the United States, these voices need to be communicated in our media and communities.
Colombian peace, human rights, religious, and grassroots organizations are bringing together these different voices and proposals for peaceful solutions to the war and its underlying causes. These efforts range from peace marches, to regional efforts for demilitarization, to work to end the impunity that prevails for human rights violators.
The following organizations also work on issues surrounding Colombia:
Acompaz (a Spanish organization)
