Policy, Politics and Power in the Americas


How do we resist current political forces and narratives that emphasize hate over humanity?  How can we build power through the networks and partnerships that connect us? How can we help transform local governments and political offices, while also exposing their faults and holding them accountable to the people they represent?  

Join Alianza Americas for informative and interactive conversations around these topics and more, and how they connect to issues at the local, national, and transnational level.  

VENUE: Washington Court Hotel, 525 New Jersey Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001
