Advocacy & Nonviolent Activism
We advocate and educate community members and legislators on the importance and necessity of human rights, non-violence and social justice considerations in U.S. foreign policy towards Latin America.
Nonviolence is at the core of DJPC values. We organize and support non-violent actions to raise awareness on issues affecting Latin America. DJPC’s Non-violent Action Campaigns include workshops, letter-writing, campaigning, and creative action focused around specific examples of excessive corporate impropriety in Latin America.
