El Salvador Encounter
For 36 years, the El Salvador Encounter Program has provided faith-based delegation experiences where participants learn from the Salvadoran people about their lives, histories, and hopes for the future.
Our Mission & vISION
CRISPAZ promotes peace with justice in El Salvador by lifting up the voice and agency of communities affected by violence and oppression while inspiring people of goodwill to act in solidarity locally and globally for nonviolent social change.
We envision a world in which people practice nonviolence to heal, build community, transform conflict and foster justice.

Inspired in the testimony of the Martyrs of El Salvador, the CRISPAZ Peace Award was established in 2009 to recognize individuals or organizations that embody the preferential option for the poor in their work for the promotion of peace and social justice.
CRISPAZ, the awarding organization, has for more than three decades enabled thousands of individuals, many from North America, to accompany the Salvadoran people in their ongoing struggle for peace rooted in justice and compassion
