Read about the sudden & unexpected release of 222 Nicaraguan release from prison and airlift to the US. (https://www.cnn.com/2023/02/09/americas/nicaragua-political-prisoners-intl-latam/index.html)

For an interesting analysis on the implications for human rights of the February, 2023, release of Nicaraguan prisoners of conscience, check out the commentary by the Washington Office on Latin America. https://www.wola.org/2023/02/release-of-political-prisoners-in-nicaragua-an-important-humanitarian-step-in-the-face-of-a-serious-human-rights-and-democracy-crisis/
House concerts help us raise money for families of Nicaraguan prisoners of. Find a personal venue (inside or outside) and invite your friends and family to come hear a local artist. The price of admission is hearing a pitch for NSF. If you raise $600, you have supported a family for a year. You get in touch with people you haven't talked to in years and they are tons of fun.
