Following the establishment of the Beckley Foundation’s drug policy advisory role to the Guatemalan government in 2011, Amanda was honoured in April 2012 to be invited by the then-President of Guatemala, Otto Pérez Molina, to establish a Beckley Foundation Latin American Chapter. The Chapter was launched at a ceremony in the Guatemalan Presidential Palace in July 2012, at which the President was the first acting Head of State to sign the Beckley Foundation Public Letter.
