ABOUT THE ISSUE

Each year thousands of Central American children and women are raped and abused in their homes and communities. Fewer than 10% of these crimes ever see a verdict in court. While some systems are slowly improving, the United States has the opportunity to send powerful aid to help Central Americans build stronger, more effective justice systems that protect their most vulnerable.

Register now to join your fellow advocates on October 21-22 and help end violence against women and children in Central America!
