This delegation will explore the roles of justice and resistance in addressing human rights violations in Honduras. Delegates will learn directly from leaders of various human rights and grassroots organizations as they share stories and legal and political organizing strategies for fighting violence, persecution, and impunity.

Participants on this delegation will:

  •  Learn about illegal land grabs by corporations; the criminalization and repression of political protest and expression; governmental and police corruption; and the increasing militarization of Honduran society.
  •  Gain knowledge about the impunity that pervades the Honduran justice and law enforcement systems with most acts of violence and murders,   violations of human rights, corruption, and illegal corporate activities going unpunished.
  •  Meet U.S. embassy officials to share what delegates have learned and to urge changes in U.S. policy in Honduras.
