Meet with people of faith, dedication, and courage who seek to improve their country from within. Learn first hand how trade agreements affect the lives of those in the countryside, how emigration is seen as the only viable alternative to survival. Learn about health care concerns, and how the immediate past has shaped the environment in this young and fragile democracy. Walk the holy ground of sites where Archbishop Romero, the four North American churchwomen and others were murdered. Witness the efforts of a President seeking to
improve life for the poor. Dialogue with U.S. Embassy personnel.
 
Come and see for yourself!

and living conditions of the poor in El Salvador
and Central America. I met people with great
determination and a vision for making changes."
