Citizenship and Democracy in Uncertain Times:

What is next for the Americas?

Alianza Americas will host Citizenship and Democracy in Uncertain Times: What is next for the Americas? on Thursday, November 10 as the opening conference to our 12th. Annual Leadership Assembly on November 11-12. The Conference and Assembly will take place just two days after the U.S. presidential elections, a timely opportunity to reflect on the outcomes, and plan for the future.  

Advocates, experts and activists from across the US, Mexico and Central America will join Alianza leaders to debate the question: What do U.S. elections mean for the Americas? An exciting line-up of speakers will bring perspectives from Latino communities, youth, black immigrants, Arab and Muslim communities, and advocates for vulnerable migrants in countries of origin and transit.

Speakers will wrestle with the thorny challenges facing immigrant communities, as well as the underlying drivers of migration in light of the results of the elections. Speakers will also kick off a conversation about what is next for mobilizing across communities, and across the region.
