DA Americas Leadership:
Thurs, May 27th 5PM MDT / 7PM EDT
Join us for a Lively and Engaging Discussion with Q&A!
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

On Tuesday May 11th, the Americas Region held its Annual General Meeting on WebEx. Outgoing Regional Vice Chair (RVC) Kathy Rothschild gave a report of the year that was (2020), and the year to come (2021), followed by a presentation by each one of our country committees, and three formation committees - including the first multi country committee, the Caribbean Islands group! Aftewards, the Americas Nominations and Elections Committee announced the winner of the RVC race: Steve Nardi!
We congratulate Mr. Nardi on his election as RVC. We expect great things under his leadership!
We also want to thank outgoing RVC, Kathy Rothschild, for her amazing term in this position.
