THE STORY:

Thank you so much for visiting this page and for considering an investment in my growth and activism. I am honored to have been invited to join the Witness for Peace 2015 midwest delegation to Colombia. This September, I will join a small group of activists, workers, organizers, elected officials, and leaders in #BlackLivesMatters and travel to Colombia to stand in solidarity and collaboration with Afro-Colombian workers, sugar cane workers, flower workers, and others demanding justice across Colombia. As a result of imperialist trade-policies, these workers are fighting for their lives and the land. As people living in the U.S., we are directly connected to the policies and models of economic oppression at play, and we have a direct role in working towards structural change from our the places that we call home. We have both much to learn and much to offer. I am genuinely humbled to be asked to step and join these brave workers, as well as to count myself in the company of the members of this delegation. Equally so, it is hard to ask my friends and comrades to invest in me personally as part of this delegation. I am fueled by the knowledge that I will bring the fire and transformation of this experience back with me - that I will let it change and shift and inform my work, and that I can hope to share that with others. More than anything, I often encourage others to be brave enough to invest in their own organizing and potential, and I would feel pretty hollow if I couldn't muster the oomph to take my own advice. :) Again, thank you, thank you, thank you for contributing and making this trip possible. You have my deep appreciation. In gratitude and community, Liz
