Two PBI webinars!

Published by Brent Patterson on

We are pleased to confirm that we will have two webinars in the coming weeks!

On Sunday October 24, we will feature PBI field volunteers talking about their first-hand experiences accompanying at-risk human rights defenders. We have Charlotte from PBI-Colombia confirmed with two more volunteers about to be confirmed as speakers. You can register for this webinar by clicking here.

And on Saturday November 6, we will amplify the voices of land defenders from Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and Nicaragua during the United Nations COP26 climate summit. You can register for this webinar by clicking here.
