For 40 years, NISGUA has woven a rich tapestry of engaged solidarity and collective action for transformation. The loom sustaining our work is our long-term relationships, grounded in mutual trust and shared struggle. The strands of our weaving include delegations, tours, accompaniment, horizontal exchanges, political education, and advocacy campaigns. Forming the weft and warp is our commitment to social, environmental, and racial justice and our recognition that global systems of oppression impact communities in both the U.S. and Guatemala.

Join us in this celebration by purchasing a calendar today!
