Bishop Barahona on Caravan to the United Nations: COFOA Continues to Fight the Failed War on Drugs

Retired Anglican Bishop and COFOA leader Martin Barahona spoke on several occasions on behalf of the Caravan for Life, Peace and Justice as it travelled through Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico and the United States, bringing the stories to the United Nations Special Session on Drug Policy of the hundreds of thousands of people impacted by the failed war on drugs. At an interfaith worship service at the UN chapel on April 18, Bishop Barahona shared the message that God calls us to stand with the people who are economically marginalized, forced to migrate, and imprisoned. COFOA continues its local and national campaign to seek alternatives to violence, like decriminalization of drug possession and investment in job training and education.
