Every year the Presbyterian Church (USA) sends Peacemakers all over the country to share about what is happening in their respective country. This year, the Peacemaker coming to our Presbytery is from El Salvador. Carmen Elena Diaz Anzora is a member of the executive committee of the Calvinist Reformed Church of El Salvador, where she works as Coordinator of the church’s education program. She holds a degree in Educational Sciences, specializing in Peace Education with additional training in Psychosocial Care and Psychotraumatology. IowaWINS will host a program featuring Ms. Anzora on Tuesday, September 27, at 4:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall. This Community Event Presentation will be followed by a potluck supper at 5:30. Everyone is invited to attend both events to learn about peacemaking activities in this Central American country. Ms. Anzora has experience in community formation, peacebuilding and conflict transformation. Her work includes psychosocial care for migrants and people in emergency situations due to disasters. In addition, she designs, implements, and systematizes learning processes for children and youth in violence prevention, community building, and peace-building.
