Review for Guatemala Human Rights Commission Usa, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is a wonderful organization staffed by extremely hard-working and effective people. Small in size but large in heart, GHRC has helped save countless lives over the past thirty years, beginning with helping refugees from the war in Guatemala resettle and/or move on to seek political asylum in other countries. Bringing the truth to light during a time when no mainstream US media were covering the massacres in Guatemala--and helping to end US military aid to Guatemala--was important work. The group's work continues now, offering help to human rights defenders who are being threatened by forces wishing to maintain the status quo; helping end violence against women, which has spiraled frighteningly in recent years; and helping Guatemalans in the US live with full respect for their rights. The organization has brought hope, help, and healing to many.
