Joe Szwaja, Seattle (Wash), 2022

Joe Szwaja’s experience with the Madison-Arcatao Sister City Project in the 1980s has continued to have an influence on his life. For example, in Seattle, where he now lives, he helped to form a kind of grassroots sistering affiliation with Nuevo Amanecer, Guatemala—a town repopulated by refugees from that country’s civil war, which shared much in common with the Salvadoran conflict.
