CRISPAZ is a non-profit faith-based organization founded in 1984. Since its founding, we have been in permanent solidarity with the Church of the Poor and marginalized communities in El Salvador and communities in the US and other countries.CRISPAZ is politically non-partisan, committed to nonviolence and supportive of faith journeys of one another. For 32 years, CRISPAZ has hosted over 7000 participants from Universities, High Schools, parishes, and other organizations that have visited El Salvador through the CRISPAZ Encounter program. These experiences promote faith, solidarity, justice, dignity through mutual accompaniment. It is our belief that many of the social and political changes can only be overcome with the understanding of our cultures.
