Youth of El Salvador November Speaking Tour
FIGHTING TO MAKE MIGRATION AN OPTION, NOT A NECESSITY
When border detention centers filled with children and families this summer, politicians finally started talking about the violence and economic inequality that have displaced millions of Central Americans. Some in the US government think that military funding is the solution. But the new government of El Salvador understands that investment in healthcare, education and equality is the path to make sure families can safely stay in their communities. Come learn what role young people are playing to build an alternative, and how you can help!
This November, CISPES is proud to host two youth workers from El Salvador's revolutionary government for a discussion about how young people in El Salvador are addressing the root causes of forced migration through youth participation, community action and violence prevention.
Roberto Escobar, Director of Education for El Salvador’s National Youth Institute (INJUVE), will visit New York City, NY, Washington, D.C. and Boston, MA between November 15-23rd. Click HERE for more information on the East Coast speaking tour!
