Nicaragua Libre
The Friendship Office works to sustain the strong ties of solidarity between the people of Nicaragua and the United States that were forged during the decades of the 1980s when US citizens worked to oppose the US sponsored contra war against the Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua. We support efforts of the poorest of the poor to create better living conditions, reforest and restore watersheds, to strengthen historic memory and to promote just U.S. and international policy toward Nicaragua.
