MIA, Mujeres Iniciando en las Américas
A 10-day Delegation Uniting Guatemalan and U.S. Women and Men, July 22 – August 1, 2012
The Latin American women’s movement is recognized internationally for its advances in combating violence against women. Latin America was the first region in the world where all countries ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women and the first to formulate a legal instrument explicitly designed to eradicate gender violence: the Convention for the Prevention, Punishment, and Eradication of Violence Against Women. This delegation will meet with civil society organizations and high-ranking officials to investigate impunity and violence against women in Guatemala.
Cost for bearing witness, organizing, and celebrating with us is $1000, including in-country transportation, food, lodging, interpretation, and honorariums for our speakers. Airfare is not included.
A deposit of $100 is due June 1, 2012, and will be non-refundable after June 25, 2012. Deposit will apply toward cost of participation. For more information on MIA’s work and past delegations visit: www.miamericas.info
