Our 2020 Accomplishments
Together with our partners, NISGUA was called to face the storms of 2020. Though we have been shocked by it all, we are also not surprised: communities at the frontlines of climate change and socioeconomic injustice have long predicted the environmental chaos and authoritarian violence we are experiencing. Today we take a collective breath and step back. Surveying all that has changed in this unprecedented year, we are moved by what we have accomplished.
Recording of our 13th Annual Event in Solidarity with the People of Guatemala
On December 7, NISGUA gathered virtually for our annual event. In case you weren't able to attend, check out the recording of our night of celebration of four decades of relationship-building, international accompaniment, and cross-border organizing!
Presenting our 2020 calendar: "Celebrating 40 years of solidarity"
Take a walk down memory lane as we celebrate our 40th anniversary! NISGUA’s 2021 calendar features beautiful images representing the many facets of our work, including posters from 1980s speaking tours, social movement artwork, and delegation photos.
No Asylum Cooperative Agreements (ACAs) with Central America!
The agreements give the U.S. power to deport asylum-seekers to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador if they are not from these countries. To stop these inhumane and illegal agreements, we need major people power. Join us!
Collaborate with NISGUA!
We are always looking for new people to bring their thoughts, ideas, and creative capacity to the work we do at NISGUA. We deeply value integrating a variety of skill-sets and viewpoints as a way to strengthen our work.
