In 2013 Global Justice and Peace Award went to Network in Solidarity with the People of Guatemala – NISGUA,  links people in the U.S. and Guatemala in the grassroots global struggle for justice, human dignity, and respect for the Earth. Formed at the height of Guatemala’s war in 1981, NISGUA’s network today is comprised of thousands of people across the U.S. who demand justice for genocidal crimes of the past, push to change current U.S. policies, challenge corporate-led development in Guatemala, and advocate for grassroots alternatives.
