Twenty-five years after the end of the armed conflict in El Salvador, thousands of families like Amanda’s continue searching for their forcibly disappeared parents, children, friends and relatives. The President of El Salvador, Salvador Sánchez Cerén, has committed to form a National Commission to Search for Disappeared Persons to investigate and clarify these crimes against humanity. The Commission should be granted the legal authority and resources necessary to investigate these cases, with the goal of locating and identifying the remains of the disappeared, and where possible, identify those responsible for these crimes in order that they be brought to justice.
Join Amanda. Send a message to thank President Cerén for his commitment to surviving family members of the disappeared, and ask him to follow through on the creation of the Commission:
