2018 was a busy year for James 1! To summarize, please check out our short photo-video production highlighting some of our work this year: finishing the Wayuu tribe video with Colombian Vice President Oscar Naranjo; presenting the James 1 piano to the Colombian National Police museum; outreach to Colombia’s Supreme Court and Chamber of Commerce; James 1 benefit concerts; and more.
The Colombian National Police are the tip of the spear fighting against major transnational organized crime syndicates that seek to supply each corner of the world with their vicious poison — cocaine. But in the course of dangerous operations throughout this country, Colombia’s brave police commandos and others on the front line are dying by the hundreds each year. The majority of these deaths are young men who leave behind families and small pensions. But we can help.
