On Sunday, November 4, 2018, the InterReligious Task Force on Central America (IRTF) will commemorate the 38th anniversary of the martyrdom of Cleveland women in El Salvador. On December 2, 1980—four US women (including Cleveland’s Jean Donovan and Ursuline Sister Dorothy Kazel) paid with their lives for deciding to stay in solidarity with oppressed and marginalized peoples, despite political turmoil in El Salvador.

Our organization was founded to carry forward their legacy. Since 1981, we have been promoting peace and justice in Central America by engaging Ohioans in education and action.

To commemorate the martyrdom of the Cleveland women

and empower people to carry on their legacy, we need your help!

We respectfully request that you consider a sponsorship or a donation (gift card or product for our auction) towards our Annual Commemoration of the Martyrs.

This event will be held at Beaumont School in Cleveland Heights. Approximately 300 IRTF friends and supporters will gather for a social hour, sit down dinner and interfaith service. Our keynote speaker from Nicaragua will be Marlen Sánchez, National Coordinator of Agroecology for the ATC (Asociación de Trabajadores del Campo). In the 1990s, ATC helped found La Via Campesina, an international social movement that defends the rights of peasants, agricultural workers, women farmers, fishers, pastoralists, indigenous peoples, and migrants in 80 countries around the world.

We hope that you decide to support our work and use this opportunity

to promote how your organization supports human rights across the Americas!
