National Coalition on Black Civic Participation Expands Its Global Reach in South America

Melanie Campbell Leads Argentina Lecture Series in Recognition of UN Decade of People of African Descent

"The National Coalition on Black Civic Participation’s president & ceo, Melanie L. Campbell, has been invited to participate in a US Public Diplomacy Speaker Project for the U.S. Embassy in Argentina on April 3 – 9, 2016. Campbell will lead a one-week lecture series to share civic engagement strategies to engage minority groups in the democratic process at the local, state, and national levels. The specific focus will be on minority youth and women in recognition of the UN Decade for People of African Descent. The audiences will be diverse – government, public and private universities, think tanks, foundations, NGOs, and USG exchange program alumni in the Province of Buenos Aires and Province of Rosario.

We look forward to the opportunity to share and exchange best practices with the people of Argentina in engaging minority communities to increase and sustain their year-round civic participation in all levels of civil society, " said Melanie L. Campbell.

The National Coalition is committed to building on its participation in the UN Decade of People of African Descent through the US Speaker Project and other global outreach. The National Coalition’s Black Women’s Roundtable recently sent a delegation of Black women leaders to participate in the Guyana Women’s Roundtable that is in line with the organization's global empowerment goals.

The U. S. Speaker Project is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s International Information Programs.
