The US-El Salvador Sister Cities Network is creating conversations about social justice, development, community organizing, the environment, and immigration on a U.S. tour. The network’s Zulma Tobar, whose family was displaced during the civil war, will be speaking, along with U.S. volunteer Carly Roach.
The network is a grass-roots organization of people living in the United States who have ongoing partnerships with small rural communities in El Salvador that began in 1986 as a citizen-based response to the U.S. intervention in El Salvador’s civil war. Today, 17 U.S. sister cities are paired with Salvadoran communities.
