About Us

Cristosal is a human rights organization working to advance human rights in Central America through rights-based research, learning, and programming. We come alongside victims of violence to provide protection when they need it most, repair the lingering effects of human rights violations, and build human rights environments to create conditions where peace is possible.

Cristosal is helping to make history on a number of fronts, from modeling victim protection programs to leading the prosecution of one of the largest unprosecuted war crimes in the world (the 1981 El Mozote massacre). The human rights issues we work on—both historic and current—have direct ties to immigration issues in North America.
