Abstract: The P.E.I. El Salvador Information Group was formed in April 1981. The Group's stated goal is one of educating its 100 members and the general public of Prince Edward Island regarding the situation in El Salvador. The group has sponsored a series of films and speakers; in March 1982, the Group sponsored an event featuring Warren Allmand, M.P., who spoke about the situation of Salvadoran refugees in Honduras, and on Canadian foreign policy with respect to El Salvador. Influencing government via letterwriting campaigns and other means is a goal of this group.
The P.E.I. El Salvador Information Group is also in the process of assisting two Salvadoran refugee families to come and live in P.E.I. The Group hopes that their work will expand in such a way that more and more Islanders will get involved. A long-term goal involves expanding the work of the group to deal with concerns related to other Central and South American Countries.
This organization no longer exists.
