The theme of the first citizen dialogue forum was the current situation in Latin America and the Caribbean: migration, democracy, human rights and the right to decide on their political and economic structures of development and vital existence. The forum was held on October 3rd, 2018, from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm, in the Mt. Pleasant library.
From an inclusive perspective, the debate centered on a Afro-Latin point of view in which the participation of the community, students, and organizations such as DC AfroLatino Caucus was broad and active. Nearly 60 people attended the forum in Washington, DC. to participate in this citizen dialogue that has as its objective the public discussion of citizen politics to empower ourselves with arguments and civic tools that allow us to strengthen participatory democracy in harmony with nature.
The invited speakers included the Nicaraguan ambassador to the US, and the Consul of Venezuela in New Orleans, Francisco Campbell and Jesús Alberto García respectively. Celestino Barrera of the United Workers Organization of Washington, DC was the driving force behind the table.
Trabajadores Unidos thanks everyone who participated in this exchange and extends you an invitation to continue building and strengthening Democracy in our American Continent (Latin America, Meso America and North America).
We will inform you and invite you to the second Forum of Citizen Dialogues soon.
