Madre Guadalupe’s Recent visit to the U.S.
Through SHARE’s partnership with CODEFAM (Committee of Families of the Disappeared) and other members of the Comite Promemoria in El Salvador we have launched a new initiative – The Campaign for Truth, Justice, and Reparations; a campaign which demands the Salvadoran government to address the issue of the Disappeared so that El Salvador can fully heal from the wounds of the civil war and create a culture of peace.
It is in the hopes of enlightening the world around the issue of the Disappeared that SHARE recently had the privilege of welcoming Madre Guadalupe to the United States and join her as she traveled through various cities and spoke about her experience as an activist advocating for the thousand of disappeared victims of the Civil War.
During her tour Madre Guadalupe visited cities across the U.S. including New York (NY), Union City (NJ) , Washington D.C., Berkeley (CA), Sacramento (CA), San Francisco (CA) and San Jose (CA). With every step of her journey Madre touched the hearts and minds of those who attentively listened to her recollections of the civil war, about her work as the President of CODEFAM and her passion that drives her to demand justice for the Disappeared for the past 30 years.
