Three opportunities to learn how to stop a dam with indigenous resistance.

Three opportunities to meet José Gómez, Maya Mam activist and coordinator of Association of Communities for Development and the Defense of Land and Natural Resources (ACODET) in Guatemala, who is visiting Denver and Boulder to receive our Global Justice & Peace Award 2018. José will will discuss the importance of indigenous organizing, grassroots exchange, and community consultations to lift up lessons from successful organizing in the Ixcán, Cobán, and Uspantán regions, where Indigenous communities have successfully halted the construction of a mega-dam for over a decade.
