 Karla Koll and Erlinda Quesada
International Peacemakers
Visit to New Brunswick Presbytery, Sept 13th to 19th

There has been a change with one of our International Peacemaker’s visit to us, due to visa issues. Instead of Xinia, we shall welcome Erlinda Quesada.

Erlinda Quesada has been an activist since her early twenties. She first became involved in the social ministry of the Roman Catholic parish in Guácima. Later she served as coordinator of women’s ministries for the Limon Diocese.  For two years she coordinated a women’s training program for Catholic Relief Services.  In 2000, she and other activists became alarmed by the negative impacts of  the expanding pineapple plantations in the Caribbean region of Costa Rica. In 2004, she helped to found the National Front of Sectors Impacted by Pineapple Production (FRENASAPP). She is the coordinator and community promotor for FRENASAPP in the Carribbean region of Costa Rica. She served for ten years on the city council for the municipality of Guacima. Currently she serves as president of the Environmental Council for the Tortuguero Conservation Area. Below see a video of Erlinda’s work.
