We are the Boston chapter of a grassroots organization, The Committee In Solidarity with the People of El Salvador, dedicated to supporting the Salvadoran people's struggle for self-determination and social and economic justice. We organize strategic campaigns against US government and corporate intervention in El Salvador and accompany the Salvadoran popular movement in its work to realize an inspiring vision of participatory democracy and economic justice.
Through grassroots organizing and action, CISPES leads strategic, national campaigns to stop US economic, political and military intervention in El Salvador. By hosting speaking tours of Salvadoran social movement leaders in the US and bringing delegations to El Salvador, we educate people in the US about the real impacts of US foreign policy and create opportunities to build cross-border solidarity.
The driving force of our work is to accompany the Salvadoran popular movement as it organizes to build a just alternative to corporate globalization. We support organizations at the forefront of this struggle through direct material aid.
