Travel study seminar takes Presbyterians to Guatemala and Costa Rica

A group of Presbyterians from across the U.S. recently had a front row seat on the impact of corporate involvement on the environment and human rights in Central America. Approximately a dozen people took part in a two-week travel study seminar to Guatemala and Costa Rica to learn about extractive mining, the impact on rivers and streams and the daily struggles of residents who must sometimes choose between good health and providing for their families.
