South Bay Sanctuary Covenant (SBSC) is an interfaith and non-partisan coalition of churches and individuals in the Bay Area. We are concerned with peace, justice and liberation for the people of Central America and for the refugees who have fled to the United States from these areas.
SBSC has had close ties for 28 years to a partner community in El Salvador called Comunidad Octavio Ortiz (COO) which is located in the southeastern region of the country on the banks of the Lempa River. Historically, this is one of the poorest and most neglected regions, and one of the areas hardest hit by El Salvador’s civil war, which ended in 1992 after claiming 75,000 lives.Add to: Google Cal, iCal, webcal
