Advocacy

BTS undertakes advocacy efforts in solidarity with our partners in Guatemala. We recognize that injustice in the north and south are linked, and these struggles are inextricably connected. As a network based in Canada, a key focus of our work is geared towards holding the Canadian government and corporations accountable.

BTS advocacy work includes activities such as:

  • urgent actions, sign-on letters, MP meetings  
  • meeting with the Canadian Embassy, keeping them abreast of human rights issues in Guatemala and expressing our concerns 
  • working collaboratively with other organizations and members of coalitions based in Canada, Guatemala and globally
  • organizing delegations to Guatemala and raising awareness within our own communities including speaking tours in the Maritimes by community leaders from Guatemala
  • keeping the BTS network informed of issues of concern to our partners through our monthly newsletter, network call-ins and social media 
  • supporting and amplifying our partners’ work
