Awards Night: November 4th at 6:00pm

By Rebeca Zuniga-Hamlin

Join us on November 4th to honor the outstanding achievement of The National Roundtable Against Metallic Mining, a campesino-led movement in El Salvador. In March 2017, the Roundtable won an historic legislative victory by securing a prohibition against all metals mining in perpetuity. For a land-poor country with vulnerable water sources and a significant rural population that would be displaced by mining, this was an unexpected and unprecedented accomplishment.

To relate the story of the movement and the details of the legislation, we have invited Ms. Vidalina Morales who is a leader in the National Roundtable.—EL-SALVADOR

Awards Night will be held at 3131 Osceola Street, Denver CO in the Fellowship Hall of the Highlands United Methodist Church. We will start with a Reception and Silent Auction at 6:00 followed by the program at 7:00 pm. Suggested donation $20 (no one turned back), tickets can be purchased at the door.
