Colombia’s fragile hold on peace is slipping.
Social leaders are fighting for both their lives and their communities.

Following Colombia’s historic peace accord in 2016, a group of activists and human rights defenders—known as social leaders—began the grassroots work of building peace in Afro-Colombian, Indigenous, and rural communities long terrorized by conflict.

MORE THAN 500 SOCIAL LEADERS HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES SINCE 2016

Social leaders are murdered for working to build peace. There have been more than 60 massacres in 2020 alone in many of the communities they work in.

TWICE AS MANY
AS IN 2018

Without the work of social leaders in Afro-Colombian, Indigenous, and rural communities, peace in Colombia is not possible.

Social leaders are calling on us to support their work for peace and protect their lives.
