The Bay Area Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador would like to invite you to our End of the Year Celebration on Saturday, December 16, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 2940 - 16th Street. We will have food and an orientation on the upcoming work of CISPES and next year's delegations to El Salvador.

With the March legislative elections in El Salvador and Trump's attack on Temporary Protected Status for Salvadorans in the United States, it is critical that we continue our solidarity work to assure that the U.S stop interfering in the political process and undermining the left government in El Salvador. Now is a crucial time for us to step up the pressure, and your support is needed to make that happen. The U.S ambassador has been giving support and encouragement to the right-wing Salvadoran Supreme Court in its unconstitutional meddling in the political and electoral process and the right-wing's attempt to blame the FMLN for Trump's racist immigration policies. We can’t wait for that to happen, we must act to prevent further increases in U.S. intervention.

We are active in the Bay Area Coalition to Save TPS in protesting the Trump administration's attack on Temporary Protected Status and calling on Congress to take action. We will have a rally at the San Francisco Federal Building, 90 - 7th Street, on Friday, January 5, at 3 p.m.
We are organizing a delegation to El Salvador from February 25 to March 9 to defend the election and to show the Salvadoran people that people in the United States do not support the racist immigration policies of Trump.
