"Fear of violence is a reality for many Guatemalans. In almost half of the sexual assault cases reported in the past 4 years, the victims were children. Sexual crimes are under-reported, and even when a report is made, 7 out of 10 cases stall out.
The Guatemalan police force needs more investigators and specialized training in order to provide reliable protection from violence.
Use your today to help the Guatemalan government better protect children and ensure justice for victims. Ask your Members of Congress to sign a letter asking the Secretary of State to invest in Guatemala's Sexual Crimes Unit."
