German Zarate-Durier is director of the Office of Diaconia (Mission and Service) of
the Presbyterian Church of Colombia, which focuses on church
development and the promotion of human rights. He works with social
justice organizations, especially those devoted to victims of
violence, and with the Presbyterian Accompaniment Program for Peace.  He visited Atlanta during the first week of October, 2013.  

Arranged through the denominational offices of the Presbyterian Church
(U.S.A.) in Louisville, Kentucky, the International Peacemakers
Program has been in existence since prior to 1988. International
Peacemakers are leaders who are engaged in peacemaking in their own
areas of the world. They are invited by the Presbyterian Church
(U.S.A.) to visit with Presbyterians in the United States and to help
us understand the peace and justice concerns of others around the
world. This sharing translates into a better understanding of the
peace and justice issues in our own communities.
