Announcing ROCLA’s October Program: Is There Hope For Mayan Communities In Guatemala?
With the recent murder of Maya Ixil activist Juana Raymundo, and the deaths of 14 other human rights defenders in Guatemala this year, the country is increasingly hostile for social movements seeking justice for Mayan communities. Speaker Tom Ward will share his perspective and slides on the status of Mayan communities. His presentation will be based on his recent trip to Guatemala to help rehabilitate indigenous villages affected by Guatemala’s historic genocide and his long-term involvement in supporting Guatemalan indigenous communities.
Tom Ward, Chair, Guatemala Partners of Gates Presbyterian Church.
Wednesday, October 3rd at 7:00 PM
121 North Fitzhugh St., Rochester
All programs are held at Downtown United Presbyterian Church and are free and open to the public.
