The Marin Interfaith Task Force on the Americas is a grassroots organization that has achieved local, national, and international recognition for its positive contribution to ending human rights abuses in Central America. Founded in 1985 in response to the U.S. role in El Salvador, MITF has since expanded its focus to include all of the Americas.

Proceeding from our hope for and commitment to world peace, our mission is to educate North American citizens about realities in the Americas and the role the U.S. plays there, and provide humanitarian aid and support for projects in those regions.


The 7,000-member Latin American Studies Association, the world’s largest professional association devoted to the study of Latin America, recently passed two important resolutions regarding U.S. government policy: one that strongly condemns U.S. policy toward Latin America (particularly U.S. support for brutal regimes in Honduras, Colombia, and Mexico and its hostile policy toward Cuba, Venezuela, and Bolivia), and a second that condemns the Obama  administration's assault on whistleblowers.
