Mauricio Morales is a former refugee of the 1980s Salvadoran civil war who became a U.S. citizen in 2011. He recently returned from participation in the Salvadoran elections. Mr. Morales will discuss the many changes he has observed in his home country between 1987, when he fled for his life to the U.S., to today, when the ex-rebel leader of the FMLN was just elected and the ARENA party is finally loosening its hold on the people of El Salvador. After spending four years in Sanctuary on Long Island sheltered by various churches, Mr. Morales and other Salvadorans were given permission to stay in the U.S. in 1992.
