In 2022, we celebrate 20 years of protective, unarmed accompaniment in Colombia. We started a crowdfunding campaign to raise 20’000 USD for the 20 years of peace presence. Check it out here and support non-violent protective accompaniment in Colombia!

Every donation makes a difference and will go towards our collaboration with communities, including support on activating emergency responses, workshops on human rights mechanisms, self-protection strategies and online safety, and physical accompaniment when it is requested by our partners and safe to do so.
