This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for 6 activists and representatives from civic organizations, political parties, and government institutions from Germany exploring Combating Online Harassment and Hate.
The delegations program from Detroit, MI will explore how the United States manages to counter harassment and hate speech within a framework of constitutionally protected speech and freedom of expression.
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.
