Welcome to the Madison Arcatao Sister City Project (MASCP) website. MASCP is the organization in Madison Wisconsin, USA that facilitates the official sister city relationship between Madison and Arcatao, El Salvador, a small town in the mountains on the border of El Salvador and Honduras. Read on to learn about our history, current activities and how you can get involved.

Families in Arcatao and the Province of Chalatenango are struggling with COVID-19.


MASCP shares in the outpouring of grief for the death of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and so many others killed by police across the country and here in Madison. People in Arcatao have shown us that any structural change requires dynamic and unrelenting community organizing.  We strongly encourage support for the organizations that are leading local protests and organizing against structural racism and police brutality. Please stay vigilant and act where you can to make structural change a reality. 

¡La lucha sigue!
