I join people in El Salvador and around the world in welcoming the beatification of Archbishop Oscar Romero.

 México's homophobia makes life challenging

México's homophobia makes life challenging
Living in Mexico as a gay American has been very interesting because it’s not something that’s necessarily accepted universally. We’re still at a point where there are gay characters on telenovelas [Mexican soap operas], but they’re the comic relief. They’re not the hero or the neighbor. The cul....

Confronting challenges in Central America

Grassroots solidarity: US, Mexican communities
Thousands of people came out to protest last month in fifty-four U.S. cities under the hashtag #USTired2.

A child of the revolution
I tried several times in the late 90s and early 2000s to go to Cuba. Twice, my visa request fell on deaf ears at the Cuban Interests Section in Washington. But then in 2004 — no explanation — I was granted a visa to travel as a journalist to the island. The man on the ground, my fixer, who helped ....

Tragedy hits home for ‘normalista’ in the U.S.
My name is Carolina Arceo. I’m from Planada, California, and I’m 45 years old. I was motivated to attend [the protests in Merced] in support of the 43 missing normalista students when I heard an announcement at my church urging the congregation to attend. Twenty years ago, I too was a normalista....

Jesus Murillo Karam’s words ....
