SOLIDARITY – FAITH – JUSTICE
CRISPAZ is an ecumenical faith-based organization dedicated to building bridges of solidarity between the Church of the poor and marginalized communities in El Salvador and communities in the US, Canada, Australia, and other countries through mutual accompaniment.
CRISPAZ strives for peace, justice, and human liberation. As an organization, we are politically non-partisan and committed to nonviolence.
El Salvador Encounter
El Salvador Encounter is a faith-based delegation experience where participants learn from the Salvadoran people about their lives, histories, and hopes for the future.
The focus of the El Salvador Encounter program is not only to develop a greater knowledge of El Salvador as a whole, but also to develop an understanding of the people and build relationship.
In October 1984 Rev. Daniel Long, a Lutheran pastor, Paddy Lane, a Quaker activist, and Peter Hinde, a Catholic priest, presented the plan for CRISPAZ to the churches in El Salvador providing refuge to people displaced from rural areas by the war.
The presence of US citizens and their advocacy in the US was seen to be important for ministry to the refugees, displaced from their communities and vulnerable to such abuse on the part of government agencies.
