Ask your congregation to sign a letter in support of Justapaz, a ministry of the Mennonite Church of Colombia and a long-term partner of Mennonite Central Committee (MCC).


Background: On July 14, Justapaz was named in a death threat by an armed group in Colombia, part of a troubling increase in death threats and assassinations in recent months in Colombia. Justapaz is asking congregations throughout the U.S. and elsewhere to sign a letter of support. This is an important way to be in solidarity with Justapaz and others in Colombia working for peace and justice.
