U.S. - Canada Civil Society Consultation for United Nations High-Level Dialogue

Executive Director, Cathleen Caron traveled to Washington D.C. to attend the United States-Canada regional civil society consultation in preparation for the United Nation’s High Level Dialogue on Migration and Development (HLD). The meeting in D.C. was one of seven regional “civil society” consultations occurring across the globe. Defender Network member, Maria Mayela Blanco Ramirez from the Dimension Pastoral de la Movilidad Humana (DPMH) in Mexico City, attended the consultation in Mexico last month. The AFL-CIO hosted the “Beyond Borders: How can we work inside and outside the UN to advance migrant’s rights?”, a consultation aimed at addressing the absence of a human rights agenda in the government discussions.
