Dying for Gold


In the last five years, I have had the distinct pleasure of bringing beloved high school students to El Salvador for justice education trips.  Over that time, I have seen the country struggle against the gold mining companies to prioritize people over profit.  The people working to ban metallic mining are very clear: We don’t need gold.  We do need water.  This audio documentary I did is a brief introduction to a very complex issue that is growing in violence as we speak.  If the story peaks your interest, please keep learning about the situation and support the people in El Salvador in this work.
