Action

Visit the Action Center for the latest action alerts in support of peace in Colombia.

Hold a vigil for peace in Colombia. Gather friends, community, church members or students to remember those who have been victimized by the Colombian conflict and to reflect on the United States' role in the violence. You may use candles, join in moments of silence or prayer, and/or combine the vigil with a "walk for peace."

Join Catholics Confront Global Poverty and take action for peace and justice in Colombia and around the world.

Communities throughout Colombia are saying "NO" to the violent conflict, and "YES" to creating a lasting peace for all Colombians.

More than forty years of violent conflict has caused great suffering for millions of Colombians, especially poor and marginalized communities, but has also inspired amazing efforts in Colombia to create a new vision for peace. The Days of Prayer and Action for Colombia is an opportunity for Catholics in the United States to support our Colombian brothers and sisters in this vision.

Please join us and many other people of faith across the United States, Canada and Colombia in the ecumenical Days of Prayer and Action for Colombia on April 16-19, 2010.
