The historic revolutionary leftist party may sweep the Salvadoran right-wing
out of power in 2009.   With the right-wing in disarray, the sense of hope
and change is palpable in El Salvador. Nonetheless, the Salvadoran right's
greatest ally--the US government--remains poised to protect one of its last
strongholds in Latin America.

Laura Embree-Lowry traveled to El Salvador as part of a fact-finding
delegation, to gather information on potential fraud, political violence and
electoral manipulation during this critical pre-elections period.   She met
with historic ex-guerillas who are now leaders in the FMLN, recently
released political prisoners, Salvadoran electoral experts, and participated
in a heated meeting with US Ambassador Charles Glazer.  She also visited
community clinics and youth centers in FMLN-controlled municipalities, where
the FMLN vision for a better, more just El Salvador has become a reality.

Come hear her experiences and join in a discussion about how you can  be
part of this critical moment in Salvadoran history that may shake the status
quo of our hemisphere.
