In just the last decade, more than 900 individuals have been killed worldwide for defending environmental and land rights. Half of the killings occurred in Brazil, and several hundred more in other parts of Latin America. We must do something to stop the hundreds of senseless killings of environmental activists throughout the world.
Use this form to send a message to the Secretary of State John Kerry urging him to defend these environmental heroes and land rights activists. If you speak out today, he can make this a priority issue for the State Department in their diplomatic relations with the governments of Brazil and other countries in Latin America.

Speak out against murders of environmental activists in Latin America
Dear Secretary Kerry,
Since 2002, over 900 environmental and land rights activists have been killed around the world because of their efforts to protect our planet. Half of these killings occurred in Brazil, and several hundred more in Latin America and Asia. The U.S. must play a leadership role in helping protect these brave individuals who are defending not just the lands they live on, but the planet that we all depend to secure a healthy future.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
