Since the assassination of the renowned feminist, indigenous human rights defender Berta Cáceres in March of 2016, we have been calling for the passage of the Berta Cáceres Human Rights Act in Honduras. With the support of US financing and training for police
and military forces, the Honduran government has become one of the most repressive in the world, engaged in targeted campaigns of violence, arbitrary detention, and assassinations against journalists, human rights activists, and Black and Indigenous community
leaders. The Berta Cáceres Act would cut all security funding to Honduras until very specific human rights improvements have been made, and until emblematic cases have been addressed according to international standards for justice.
