    End of year Reflection from Kati Hinman

    FORPP Accompanier Kati Hinman has been an international accompanier in Colombia for over a year. Here she reflects upon her time in Colombia:

    It’s been over a year since I first hopped off the plane to start a new job in Colombia, and thought I’m writing now from Bogota, it’s the Peace Community of San José de Apartadó that was my base for almost that entire time. When talking to a coworker about my experience in the Community, he commented, “that place certainly does something to people.” I can’t speak for every accompanier, but it certainly influenced me.

I learned about just how difficult it can be to connect to people from a vastly different experience than me, and that maybe I’m not as open hearted as I’d like to think I am. I saw first-hand the effects of an economic system that privileges the Global North and tyrannizes the Global South.
