“No political party made this happen. This bridge was built because of our organizing.” – Juan Ramon, COFOA leaders.
Anglican Bishop David Alvarado and government officials joined Juan Ramon and 1,000 people in Usulutan to dedicate the new bridge over Rio Roldan. It is named “Angel” for the boy who lost his life in its waters. Promised 15 years ago, this $1million bridge came after three years of COFOA meetings and protests to demand action.

To build political power that can achieve local victories like the bridge and wage campaigns on national issues like access to water, COFOA is building organizations in the La Libertad and San Salvador Departments. Their goal is to be organizing in half the departments in the coming year. Click here to see how this effort is going.
