Advocating for Human Rights in Honduras
The Sisters of Mercy have been responding to human rights abuses in Honduras, a country in which we live and minister, ever since a coup in that country in June 2009. Mercy delegations from the United States have visited Honduras and, upon their return, worked with other human rights defenders to urge Congress and the State Department to withhold assistance to Honduran security forces until respect for human rights and the rule of law are restored.
