Join us Wednesday, September 11th for our 2019 Annual General Meeting, meet our staff, and learn about the successes and challenges facing our partners in Latin America.
In Colombia almost 700 rights defenders and over 135 former FARC members have been assassinated since January 2016. Those killed include community leaders, teachers, trade unionists, representatives of victims and survivors groups, and water and forest defenders.
On July 26, 2019 CoDev and our Canadian partners joined thousands around the world to draw attention to the wave of violence against Colombian social leaders, and to call for an end to it.
CoDev shares this compilation of photos as a memoir of some of the actions that took place in Canada to honour the invaluable work that social leaders and human rights defenders do for life and peace in Colombia. https://youtu.be/Q2lep3MNUxs
Building Partnerships for Global Justice
CoDevelopment Canada is a B.C.-based NGO that works for social change and global education in the Americas. Founded in 1985 by a group of activists who wanted to go beyond financial aid, CoDev builds partnerships between like-minded organizations in Canada and Latin America to foster learning, social change, and community empowerment. These partnerships educate Canadians about Latin America and allow them to directly support the region. Such connections build solidarity, mutual understanding and ultimately improve prospects for a fairer global order.
