Bienvenido/a al Centro de Información.

Nuestra misión es trabajar con quienes -desde la sociedad civil, las empresas o los gobiernos- abordan las asimetrías de poder, buscan la remediación por abusos y aseguran la protección de las personas y del planeta.

Tanto las empresas como las comunidades afectadas nos dan las gracias por los recursos y el apoyo que les brindamos, respectivamente.

Ello es únicamente posible por tu apoyo. Por favor, haz tu donación ahora.

Muchas gracias,
Phil Bloomer, Director Ejecutivo
