Moakley Oral History Project OH-008
Carol Pryor, a member of the Jamaica Plain Committee on Central America (JPCOCA), discusses her background and education; the creation of and her involvement with the Jamaica Plain Committee on Central America in the early 1980s; the January 1983 meeting with Congressman Moakley regarding El Salvador; Moakley’s reaction to the issues brought to his attention by JPCOCA and his pursuit of these issues through his key aide, Jim McGovern; and the activities of the Jamaica Plain Committee during the 1980s to help the cause of Salvadoran refugees. In conclusion, Ms. Pryor expresses how Congressman Moakley’s actions far exceeded the hopes of the Jamaica Plain Committee and how much she enjoyed the experience of helping the Salvadoran people.
