Urgent Action: Colombian Activist Threatened
On Friday May 24th Nidiria Ruiz Medina, one of our partners in Colombia, received a note at the entrance of her home saying "a bullet for Nidiria Ruiz." This is a very serious threat in a country where 2018 saw more assassinations of human rights defenders than any other year in history, and where 2019 is on course to exceed that. Nidiria came on Speaker’s Tour with our organization last fall, and as Coordinator of the AINI Women's Association of the Naya River and Representative of CONPAZ (Communities Building Peace in the Territories), does tireless and important work educating, organizing, peace-building, and supporting women’s leadership. Tell your Congressperson to demand Nidiria’s safety.
