Dear rebellious-spirited and bold-hearted friends,
We persist in the work we do because of the creative tenacity and vision of the Mayan communities in resistance in Chiapas. In the face of dispossession of their lands, organized crime, and climate chaos they continue to struggle for life for all of us. They don’t give up, they don’t give in, and they don’t sell out.
For nearly 30 years, we have walked beside these communities because they have stood by all of us in our humanity, our fragility and our struggle for a better world.
Whether it be in community literacy or in community health promotion, in support of women’s organizing or of sustainable collective economies we see that our work together matters.
We have learned from the wisdom of the intrepid communities in resistance that we cannot wait for the storm to pass, that we must build the path toward the world that must be created.
AND THAT IS SOMETHING WE MUST DO TOGETHER.
