In a lead up to the June 2022 Summit of Americas to be held in Los Angeles, California, learn how CRS works as a critical on-the-ground actor in key countries throughout the migratory systems in the Americas working to address root causes of migration and promoting protection, regularization, and integration of migrants unable to return home. As additional attention is drawn to irregular migration at the U.S.-Mexico border, this will be an important conversation with policy leaders and humanitarian and development implementers about solutions to support vulnerable communities. 

This webinar is the latest in a series to highlight the work CRS is doing throughout the Americas to ensure vulnerable populations, including the displaced, are treated with dignity. Policy leaders and our colleagues based in the region will share stories about how our work is having real impact in the most vulnerable communities where we serve. 

We are honored to feature the following experts:

Rebecca Bill Chavez, President and CEO, Inter-American Dialogue

Lheslye Perez, Chief of Party, CRS/Guatemala

Dan Restrepo, former Special Assistant to the President & Senior Director for Western Hemisphere Affairs at the National Security Council
