NISGUA is currently hiring for a full time Digital Organizer and a part time Remote Internacionalista! We are looking for committed and politically-grounded individuals to join our team.

70+ organizations express concern about Guatemala’s NGO Law
"We reject the implementation of this revised law, given that it violates the freedoms of expression and association and creates a hostile environment for those working to defend human rights. The revised law seeks to silence any public criticism or action that may threaten the state’s power, thereby perpetuating schemes of corruption and impunity."
Webinar! "On our own terms: Indigenous perspectives on forced displacement & immigration systems"
Presenting Floridalma Boj Lopez (Maya K'iche'), Gerónimo Ramírez (Maya Ixil), Natali Segovia (Quechua/Peruvian). Join us on July 1 at 3 PM PT // 5 PM CT // 6 PM ET.
