Preview

The transnational nature of the Central American solidarity movement required missionaries to use different techniques to make the region’s problems visible and relevant to North Americans. One way was to provide people with firsthand experience by taking them to Central America. Solidarity leaders also arranged face-to-face meetings between Salvadoran and Guatemalan refugees and faith communities in the U.S.
