On Mar. 27th, Comite En Union para Salvadorenos (CEUS) and several other groups commemorated the life and work of Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero, who was assassinated 30 years ago because of his work defending the poor and oppressed.

About 150 people attended the event at St. Peter's College in Jersey City, which featured music from Jose Guardado Matias, the Solidarity Choir and Caballero de Barro, poetry from Karla Corea and folk dancing from Grupo Cuscatlan.
