Work for Justice in Guatemala

Oakland-based NISGUA (Network in Solidarity With the People of Guatemala) is recruiting accompaniers to join NISGUA’s Guatemala Accompaniment Project (GAP).

The Guatemala Accompaniment Project (G.A.P.) of the Network in Solidarity with the People of Guatemala (NISGUA) trains and places qualified candidates as human rights accompaniers. NISGUA is one of many organizations around the world that employs accompaniment as a vital tool in the global struggle for the respect of human rights. In the Guatemalan context, accompaniment creates a non-violent response to the threats, harassment, and violence faced by survivors of Guatemala’s 36-year-long civil war, grassroots organizations working for justice, and indigenous communities combating destructive mega-development projects on their land.

The application deadline has been extended to April 16 and the next training is planned for early June.
