In 2014, the Salvadoran people elected a popular movement
leader president. The FMLN government of Salvador Sánchez
Cerén is implementing social programs to transform the
county and make it a place where everyone can lead a
dignified life. Come and hear how the results of the March 1
legislative and municipal elections will effect the
government’s ability to continue and expand these programs.
Hear from two Bay Area chapter members – Ana Fisher and
Jackie Kramer – who went on a CISPES election observer
delegation and met with social movement and political leaders.
Learn how U.S.-promoted policies created the inequality that forces 300 Salvadoran to leave their country every day in search of a better life and the Salvadoran government’s revolutionary education, healthcare, and community programs that are working to make migration an option, not a necessity. Learn what you can do to support the revolutionary process and keep the U.S. from interfering in these incredible transformations.
Tues., March 17; 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
