Description

Cambridge-El Salvador Sister City Upcoming Event

Bernardo Belloso, president of CRIPDES (the organization of the Salvadoran popular movement.) and Zulma Tobar, Salvadoran coordinator for US-El Salvador Sister Cities will be joined by Elena Letona from Neighbor to Neighbor, Lena Entin from Toxics Action Center and Mina Reddy from Mothers Out Front Cambridge.

There are now more than 10,000 unaccompanied minors in holding facilities in the US, and 500 children still not reunited with their families. The violence produced by economic and judicial factors in El Salvador and US/Trump policies have contributed to critical challenges. Simultaneously, climate change is creating conditions of drought and flooding.

Salvadoran grassroots organizers have spearheaded the unprecedented successful banning of metallic mining for the country and mobilized and supported organized communities for social, economic and environmental justice.
