After more than 50 years of armed conflict in Colombia, a historic peace deal was signed in 2016 marking a formal end to the conflict. Right now, however, the peace deal is under threat as key parties to the agreement are reversing their commitments.

Colombian peacebuilders and human rights defenders are leading a campaign to defend the peace. They are working to collect 1 million signatures in Colombia to safeguard critical elements of the peace accord - and they seek international support.

Sign this petition to support Colombian peacebuilders and help them save their peace deal.

Colombia's brutal armed conflict killed more than 220,000 people, displaced over 7 million, and created over half a million refugees. The Colombian people do not want to return to violence.

The United Nations and international diplomatic community has dedicated years to help Colombians win the peace agreement. As crises escalate in Venezuela and the Northern Triangle, regression on peace in Colombia poses even more of a critical threat.

Tell Secretary-General Guterres and the international community to support Colombian peacebuilders and help them save their peace deal.
