Inclusion of Women and the Diaspora in the Political Process and their Power in Influencing Policies in the United States and Haiti

Location: Room 114

As the saying goes, “If you are not at the table, you are on the menu.” The importance of Diaspora’s participation in the political process in host countries–whether by exercising its right to vote and/or running for office–cannot be stressed enough. This session will discuss the political process in the United States and various ways the Diaspora can get involved. It will also explore the cost of not being engaged in the political process.
