This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for three government officials from Germany who will be examining U.S. perspectives on Countering Hate and Promoting Tolerance.
The delegation's program in Detroit, MI will help the visitors develop a better understanding of how U.S. community organizations, advocacy groups, academic institutions, and government bodies work to support equal rights and combat right-wing extremism.
A lot of people spend half their lives to get the opportunity to meet the people that we met in just 10 days [in Detroit]. This concentration of knowledge and resources brought me one step closer to being global.
The opportunity to welcome and work with international delegations visiting Detroit provides a very rich experience. To be engaged in this work is significant and very rewarding. The world is becoming smaller every day and Global Ties Detroit contributes greatly in building strong bridges with people and nations across the globe.
