Presente Edwin Fernández! Edwin provided security in a community where our partner, the Black Fraternal Organization of Hondurans (OFRANEH), is doing COVID relief. He is just one of the many environmental, land and Indigenous rights defenders who have been killed in recent years.
The Garifuna and our partner OFRANEH in Honduras have been facing down armed assaults this month. It's a concrete example of the violence that is driving people north to the U.S.-Mexico border.
