We discussed how climate and weather impact their crops, the farmer’s likes and dislikes of farming, and what organizations readers can reach out to support farming in Central America (original Spanish included).

We have already emitted enough greenhouse gases (GHGs), such as CO2, to change the very composition of our atmosphere. Scientists, researchers, policymakers, and governmental officials alike know this; they know that the effects of climate change are occurring now and will continue into the not-so-distant future.

This report explores the exacerbated risks that LGBTQI individuals face in their home countries, along the path of migration, and especially within U.S. immigration detention camps.
IRTF takes annual advocacy trips to Washington D.C. to speak with officers in each of our representatives' and senators' W.D.C offices. We express our cries of just policy that promotes freedom, justice, peace, and dignity for our neighbors in this hemisphere. We promote humane immigration policy that sees those arriving at our southern border as refugees rather than criminals, policy that restricts the neoliberal neocolonialist actions of trans and multi-national corporations, and a budget that significantly cuts military aid to central and South America and Mexico, among other issues.
The InterReligious Task Force on Central America was founded 37 years ago to honor the sacrifice and carry forward the legacy of solidarity of Cleveland’s church women who were raped and murdered in El Salvador. Living out that solidarity is as important now as ever.
