This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for six researchers and community advocates from Russia and their U.S. State Dept. interpreters, who will be visiting Detroit to examine Combating Violent Extremism.
The delegation's program in Detroit, MI will provide the visitors with insight into how the actions of clergy, government officials, academics, law enforcement, journalists, and community leaders in the United States can contribute to an environment that nurtures acceptance and discourages expressions of 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.
