The soup/potluck will begin at 5:30 p.m. (EDT), followed by the presentation at 6 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

CCGAP is celebrating 15 years of supporting human rights accompaniers in Guatemala as a form of violence prevention. In addition, their mission includes educating people in our North American community about conditions in non-overdeveloped countries like Guatemala. They have brought visitors from Guatemala to the Copper Country and helped local residents to visit Guatemala as well.
