In Guatemala, the conservative government has been increasingly bold and aggressive about consolidating its powers. The past few months have seen the election of a new conservative president, the dismantling of anti-corruption commission CICIG, and two states of siege on rural and indigenous communities. We interviewed a JASS ally, who preferred to remain anonymous due to security risks, to find out what this all means for our Guatemalan countries.

Happy International Women's Day! A big theme around the world is violence against women and how to stop it, and despite some grim realities, we're actually feeling optimistic. First, let's acknowledge how much progress has been made – laws, policies, services, task forces, research, training, and even phone apps! Though uneven, there is awareness that violence is wrong and unacceptable – in homes, in wars, in the military, in schools, at workplaces, at parties, on buses, and in intimate relationships.
