IFCLA is thrilled to present an event with Lisa Haugaard, Executive Director of the Latin America Working Group, on April 18th at 12 pm. Lisa will speak on the implications of the Trump administration’s immigration policy and foreign policy on Latin America, with a specific focus on Honduras, El Salvador and Mexico. In addition, she will discuss what the administration’s policy decisions mean for human rights in 2018 and beyond.

Founded in 1983, the Latin America Working Group (LAWG) amplifies activists' voices in Washington, D.C. by connecting with activists across the United States and offering tools that they need to expand their ability to influence U.S. foreign policy. Lisa, LAWG’s Executive Director, has spearheaded advocacy efforts for human rights and peace issues in Latin America for two decades. She directs advocacy efforts for Colombia, Central America, development and military aid and policy and coordinates coalition campaigns with U.S. and Latin American partners. She has participated in international human rights verification missions in Colombia, Mexico and Central America, including on extrajudicial executions, human rights defenders, migrant rights, and electoral observation.

A presentation by Lisa will be followed by a question and answer period. Lunch is provided. Please join us!
