Presented by Zulma Tobar, US-El Salvador Sister Cities

Event Details

Tuesday, October 8, 2019
12:30-1:30 p.m.
Community organizing has had a big impact in the rural communities of El Salvador since the armed conflict in the 80s. The importance of solidarity beyond borders is essential for the growth of communities and for real changes. Organized communities have achieved huge changes in the last 30 years. The biggest challenges today are: the struggle to protect territory, land and natural resources; and forced migration.

We will serve a light lunch on a first-come, first-served basis.
