My name is Matilde Terraza. I am an Ixil Maya women from Nebaj, one of the three municipalities from the Ixil region which experienced some of the worse massacres during Guatemala’s armed conflict. On December 15, 2013 my town will be holding a re-election to elect its mayor. As a concerned Ixil woman, I am working with Acción Ciudadana, an organization that promotes transparency, to plan an election observation project. I will be coordinating 75 volunteers from Nebaj to observe the election after being trained as observers. We need your help to make it happen. We are fundraising for $1750 – that’s only 90 people giving $20 each in the next week! All funds will go towards providing food and travel expenses for all the volunteers to be trained and to travel to their polling tables for observation on December 15. You can make a tax-deductible donation via Paypal.
