Contribute to a Just Foreign Policy

We know you want to see a  just U.S. foreign policy to Latin America.

We’re working on it.  But we need your help. We need you to stay active and keep those calls and letters coming. And we need you to generously support our work, with a non-tax-deductible gift to the LAWG for our advocacy efforts. Or give a tax-deductible gift to the LAWGEF for our educational work.

LAWG staff at Ecumenical Advocacy Days 2010Here are just a few examples of the crucial work your contribution supports:

  • We helped bring more than 700 activists to Washington to empower themselves through informative panels with expert speakers and to advocate on the Hill for comprehensive immigration reform and aid for refugees in an inspiring conference entitled, “A Place to Call Home: Immigrants, Refugees, and Displaced Peoples.”
  • We worked with our partners in Washington and around the country to mobilize grassroots activists, religious leaders, Cuban Americans, and farmers to call on Congress to pass H.R. 4645,  “The Travel Reform and Export Enhancement Act,” which would restore the right of ALL U.S. citizens to travel to Cuba, facilitate U.S. agricultural sales to the island, and help put food on the tables of the Cuban people.
  • We’re organizing hundreds of churches and grassroots groups to take part in the National Days of Action for Colombia this April. With over 4.9 million people now internally displaced in Colombia, we need to make sure that our communities and our government pay attention to our hemisphere’s hidden humanitarian crisis. So, this year, we’re going to make them “Face the Displaced” by creating and displaying thousands of posters in cities across the country featuring photos and stories of forcibly displaced people in Colombia.
  • We asked for $3 billion in aid to help Haiti rebuild from the devastating earthquake. The President just asked the Congress for a sizable aid package.  That’s great!  But we still need to make sure the aid is Haitian-led, helps people who are homeless, helps farmers plant their crops—and we need our Congress to say yes.

But we know that we’ll only get our government to do right if we keep up this pressure. Will you help sustain us by giving a non-tax-deductible gift to the LAWG for our advocacy efforts or a tax-deductible gift to the LAWGEF for our educational work? Please help us continue our shared work of advocating for peace with justice in U.S. policy towards Latin America.
