The Association of Haitian Professionals (AHP) cordially invites you to its Seminar on:
Diaspora immersing into Political System of the Adopted/Host Country, from Immigrant to American Story
With every US election cycle, the notion of Diaspora immersion into the political system at the local or national level resurfaces in various opinion circles, radio/tv shows and even social Medias. Whether the aim is to achieve political empowerment, lasting economic gains or simply bettering a demographic group’s life in the adopted/host country, it is universally accepted that political implication is one of many paths forward to improve one’s future trajectory. Decisions are usually brokered across the policy and political tables of power.
From the shared career experiences of two prominent elected officials in the DC Metro area: Councilmember Nancy Navarro and Attorney-General Karl Racine, this session examines the importance and benefits for Diasporas - Communities of emigrants and their descendants - to take an active role into the US political system.
Either as a motivated voter or an aspirant to elected office, the extent and value of one’s implication into the politics where they reside cannot be overstated. This discussion will serve as a springboard to open up broader conversations leading to engagement pathways from the grass-root issue-oriented points of view, electorate participation and the elected decision-maker perspectives.
