The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies(CLACS) at NYU and the Kimberly Green Latin American And Caribbean Center at FIU present a virtual workshop for refugee and immigrant advocates and attorneys to learn about insecurity and violence in the Northern Triangle.
The workshop is free and open to educators and student service professionals. Registration is required by Thursday, June 24, 2021.
About the Workshop:
This virtual workshop offers a professional development opportunity to refugee and immigrant advocates and attorneys interested in understanding the situation of insecurity and violence in the Northern Triangle of Central America. The virtual training will examine the causes and conditions behind the development of a gang phenomenon in many countries in the Central America. It will provide a space for discussion of community-led initiatives to better understand cultural, historical, economic, and societal causes of gang development and the effectiveness of state responses in the Americas. The training will also focus on the vulnerabilities of immigrant communities and the underserved populations in the US.
