Dear supporter of human rights throughout the Americas:
On Sunday, November 3, 2019, the InterReligious Task Force on Central America (IRTF) will commemorate the 39th anniversary of the sacrifice of Cleveland’s missionaries in El Salvador. On December 2, 1980—four US women (including Jean Donovan and Ursuline Sister Dorothy Kazel of Cleveland) paid with their lives for their decision to stay in solidarity with poor, marginalized, victims of violence in El Salvador. Our organization was founded to honor their witness and carry forward their legacy of solidarity. Since 1981, we have been promoting peace and justice in Central America by engaging Ohioans in education and action.
Please support our work for the people of Central America and Colombia: promoting peace, justice, human rights, and systemic transformation through nonviolence.
On November 3, hundreds will gather to mark the sacrifice of Cleveland’s church women 39 years ago, honor those killed today for standing up for human rights, and recommit ourselves to act in solidarity with poor and marginalized communities in Central America and Colombia.
