This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for six migration advocates from Chile, Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico, and Venezuela exploring migration issues.
The delegations program from Detroit, MI will examine interagency efforts and standards for processing and resettling immigrants in the United States, explore efforts to combat discrimination, increase international cooperation on immigration issues, and study immigrants’ and minorities’ employment opportunities and civic participation.
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.
