    Central American Immigration 2021 under the Biden Administration

    Thurs, May 27th 5PM MDT / 7PM EDT

    Join us for a Lively and Engaging Discussion with Q&A!

     RSVP Here!

    Your Zoom link will be sent a day prior to the event.

    We're excited to host this timely event, bringing back our former Ambassador and friend, Mari Carmen Aponte. Ambassador Aponte participated in DA's Ambassadors for Biden and joined us for our 2020 elections event. And we look forward to welcoming award-winning journalist, Maria Emilia Martin, contributor to NPR and other news media, and based in Guatemala. 

    Our speaker event is centered around the DA Resolution:Central American Immigration 2021, which focuses on the Northern Triangle Countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, authored by John Chudy, Vice Chair of Democrats Abroad Guatemala. We're fortunate to have his collaboration and for having him join us personally. John will be presenting the resolution, which provides much food for thought - and discussion!

    We'll get to hear from our guest speakers and will then follow up with a Q & A discussion session.

    U.S. immigration policies have profound consequences for our Central American neighbors, and affect the lives of United States Citizens as well. We have always been, and will continue to be, a nation of immigrants. So please join us from wherever you are.

    We look forward to seeing you there,

    Alexia Chamorro, Chair; and Hudak Hendrix, Vice Chair  

    DA El Salvador Formation Committee

    Note: We will begin the formal establishment of DA El Salvador this fall, and seek members interested in joining us on our leadership team - or volunteering in other ways. Or simply sign up to be on our Contact List for news and events announcements. Let us know how you'd like to be involved here:
