Independence is Just a Beginning
Your Support Is Still Needed!

The East Timorese recognize the need for ongoing international solidarity with the new nation. Nobel laureate Jose Ramos-Horta has said an independent East Timor will prioritize its relationship with international friends.

Your participation and financial support are essential.

Non-tax deductible contributions for our political advocacy work should be made out to ETAN/U.S.; tax-deductible donations for educational efforts should be made out to the AJ Muste Memorial Institute (put ETAN/U.S. in the memo line). Thank you.
