Please join us for a dinner with the Americas Division Director of the Human Rights Watch, Tamara Taraciuk Broner. She will discuss recent attacks on democratic institutions in Central and South America along with migration issues.
In an effort to support the Summit of the Americas, the Pacific Council will co-present a series of events focusing on critical diplomatic goals with various partner organizations from March through June 2022. The week of June 6th, President Biden will host leaders from the countries of the Americas—from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego—in Los Angeles, California for the Ninth Summit of the Americas. The Ninth Summit marks the first time the United States has hosted the event since the inaugural meeting in Miami in 1994. It is President Biden’s highest priority event for the region and the only hemispheric meeting of leaders.
