Karen Spring and Edwin Espinal in Honduras

Our guest speaker Karen Spring is a human rights defender, researcher, and, currently, the Honduras-based Coordinator for the Honduras Solidarity Network (HSN). Karen works to educate North Americans about US and Canadian foreign policy in Honduras and Central America, with particular emphasis on the impacts privatization of public sector services and the effects of militarization on human rights.

Karen has written several articles and reports about human rights issues including Mining in impunity: Coerced negotiations and forced displacement by Aura Minerals in Western Honduras. Karen has testified before Canadian Parliamentary committees about human rights violations in Honduras and blogs at aquiabajo.com. Karen has been living in Honduras since July 2009. She has a BSc in international relations and human biology from the University of Toronto, a BSW from Lakehead University, and a Master of Public Health from Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, Canada.

We are a grassroots human rights organization dedicated to supporting the social justice movements in Latin America and the Caribbean, along with educating North Americans about the realities of the Americas and the role the US plays there. Founded in 1985, we are also known as the Marin Interfaith Task Force on the Americas (MITF).
