In Lisa’s words: “….what I will share is what this reality looks like from the perspective of the poor, with whom I have lived and worked for over 30 years. It’s a different from that of the Washington Post.”

Lisa Sullivan is the Latin America Coordinator for School of the Americas Watch, a nonviolent grassroots movement that works to stand in solidarity with the people of Latin America, to close the U.S. Army School of the Americas (SOA). Lisa has led SOA Watch delegations to 19 countries in Latin America, meeting with social movements and government leaders on issues of militarization, human rights and sovereignty, leading to the withdrawal of six countries from the SOA. Lisa has lived in Venezuela since 1982, and for 21 years was a Maryknoll Lay missioner, working as a community organizer in the western barrios of Barquisimeto where she raised her three children. She is co-founder of the Centro Cultural San Juan, an initiative that teaches Afro-Venezuelan music to youth in rural and urban areas of the state of Lara.
