Why the need of a conference?

A number equal to a fifth of America’s population, nearly half that of Russia and more than the entire population of Britain: 72 million persons are displaced by violence and persecution, disasters, environmental degradation, development projects, poverty, and poor governance.

This unprecedented humanitarian crisis is not only happening during our generation’s watch, but it is also happening in our own backyard.

An estimated 5,000 Venezuelans pack up their lives and leave every day in what has become the largest exodus in modern Latin American history

The number of Venezuelans fleeing is expected to reach 5.3 million by the end of 2019, while a study warns that ”if during 2019 some variables remain at their current level the total number of Venezuelan migrants could reach more than 8 million.

Moral communities- those communities who profess concern about their fellow human beings- lack awareness not only of the magnitude but the complexity of the most defining issue of the half of the 21st century: how we treat each other.

The Latin American Refugees and Moral Communities Expo and Conference is

an event of global importance, bringing practitioners and decision-makers from leading international organizations,

NGOs,

governmental bodies,

charities,

aid workers,

foundations,

media,

academia,

religious organizations, and the private sector

 

to join their hands to address the global needs of the people and countries in the Americas

affected by an unprecedented influx of forcefully displaced persons.

 

A perfect and timely platform to network, discuss and share challenges, experiences, best practices, identify innovative solutions and seize new opportunities to support the crisis-affected communities.

 

LARMC Conference and Expo offers an international forum to share and debate cutting-edge developments in refugee assistance.

 

The event pays special attention to strategies and best practices in integration. Ultimately, the refugee issue is about people: their worth, destiny, rights, and responsibilities.
