Advocacy Home

The BTS Advocacy Committee is a group of volunteers that meets monthly to work on current justice, policy and solidarity issues, and adds to the rest of the work of the larger BTS network. Aside from keeping informed of the current context in Guatemala as a way to guide our work, we also advocate on issues of truth, justice and accountability, security, gender violence and feminicide, the defense of territory and food sovereignty. Our advocacy committee spearheads the letters of support we write for our partners and allies, education and outreach in Canada, coordinating speaking tours, article writing and research and maintaining a strong presence in various coalitions throughout Canada, the United States and Europe.

Our advocacy work is ongoing and continues to expand as we work in collaboration with partners in Guatemala.
