At the end of a decade of mass migration to the United States, Mexican non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) and hometown associations (HTA’s) have begun to discuss the “el derecho a no emigrar” (the right to remain in one’s homeland) and to launch local community development projects that provide alternatives to emigration. This binational panel of NGO and HTA representatives showcases different philosophies and strategies these organizations have embraced to undertake this new agenda.

Panelists: Adriana Cortés, Fundación Comunitaria del Bajío; Gaspar Rivera-Salgado, Frente Indígena Oaxaqueño Binacional; and Efraín Jiménez, Federación de Clubes Zacatecanos.

Cost : Free and Open to the Public
