SUPPORT OUR COLOMBIA DELEGATION
Colombia is the most dangerous place in the world to be a union organizer. In 2018, 34 union organizers were killed, more than twice the number killed in 2017 (15). Already in the first six months of 2019, 10 members of just one labor organization, FENSUAGRO, have been killed.

We seek a U.S. foreign policy that promotes global economic and social justice, not the use of military force. We want our government to meet human needs, not cater to corporate greed.”
