At CISPES, we believe in the power of organizing. That’s why we support grassroots groups in El Salvador doing courageous and important organizing on the ground, such as land and water defenders, labor unions, youth opposing militarism, and more.
As we approach a new year – and opportunities to strengthen our solidarity – your financial support could really make a difference. But don’t take it from me!
Here’s a message we recently received from one of our allies at a women-led garment workers union about the impact of our solidarity.
“This collective love – and giving from our hearts – sustains us and makes us stronger every day, convinced that another world is possible if we remain united. Infinite thanks for your support!”
The generosity of people like you is what makes this support possible – and I hope we can count on you to give from your heart, too.
In his quest to bury Salvadoran democracy and return to dictatorship, Bukele and his allies rely on fear and intimidation. That’s why CISPES’ accompaniment – and the unique, people-to-people solidarity we create – is essential right now. Will you help us deliver the hands-on support that’s needed today?
Right now, our goal is to ensure there are international observers on the ground for February’s pivotal election – and just a few days remain to make a tax-deductible gift for 2023. Please help us meet our goal by December 31! (To show our thanks, we’ll send our new sticker for donations of $15 or more or our new water bottle for donations of $50 or more!).
¡La lucha sigue! The struggle continues!
-Alexis Stoumbelis, Executive Director & all of us at CISPES
P.S. For over 40 years, donations from people like you have sustained our critical accompaniment work – we hope we can count on your support in these trying times.
