When I was a small child, the US was backing the El Salvador government in a war against everyday Salvadorans who were tired of the abuses of their government. Advocacy was vital to the process of the US stopping our funding of this war and the peace accords that followed. In 2013 I had the pleasure of traveling there, learning more about what had happened and partnering with a community that was working to rebuild a school that had been bombed with American supplied bombs during that war. I give to CoCoDA because they are about the rebuilding of communities and they do it by working with local communities to find out what projects are important to them. I encourage you to learn more about what they are doing and their history and to give to support these projects.
