The El Salvador Encounter through CRISPAZ is an educational immersion experience in which participants learn from the Salvadoran people about their lives, histories, and hopes for the future.  A major focus of the encounter is to reflect on the meaning of working for justice rather than working for charity, understanding one’s role as a global citizen, and humanizing the different issues that are present in our societies.  Participants learn directly from Salvadorans about issues such as the impact of war, neoliberal economics, U. S. foreign policy, migration, mining, the environment, and a tradition of liberating faith all through a healthcare lens.  The trip will also include meetings with Salvadoran medical professionals to learn from health care teams and public health educators to understand ongoing initiatives in a rural community.
