PPF Joins U.S. Organizations' Call for an End to Threats, Attacks, and Murders of Afro-Colombians

Our organizations strongly condemn the murders, attacks, and death threats that Colombian illegal armed groups have perpetrated against Afro-Colombian leaders and communities in Chocó, Cauca, Valle del Cauca, and Atlántico. We strongly encourage the U.S. authorities to take action to make sure that Colombia's Attorney General's office investigates and brings the perpetrators of murders, attacks, and death threats against Afro-Colombians to justice. Colombia's National Protection Unit should act swiftly to guarantee the safety of Afro-Colombian leaders under threat.
