Live from Los Angeles: The joint future of the Caribbean working with Latin America
Immediately following the conclusion of the ninth Summit of the Americas, the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center in partnership with the Foro Ciudadano de las Américas will livestream a high-level discussion that will serve as the first post-Summit readout. Join us to hear from Latin American and Caribbean leaders on common objectives and set the tone for future partnerships.
AALAC’s #RoadToTheSummit Campaign
The Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center (AALAC) launched a partnership with the US Department of State in anticipation of the ninth Summit of the Americas. The Summit brings together policymakers, the business community, civil society organizations, and multilateral representatives to tackle new and emerging challenges through hemispheric cooperation. The convening is also a moment for the United States to build stronger relations with Latin America, the Caribbean, and Canada – all regions and countries essential to the health, prosperity, and security of US interests and citizens. As the first US-hosted Summit since 1994, it is a critical moment for US partnership in the hemisphere and a unique opportunity for regional stakeholders to work together to shape the future of the Americas.
AALAC’s partnership with the US Department includes a series of events that will bring bold and innovative solutions on issues in the Americas to new audiences and will include a public campaign on the #RoadToTheSummit. The events and campaigns will bring together unlikely allies across various spectrums, including US and regional governments, business communities, civil society organizations, the media, and influencers. These actors are coming together put forward a fresh take on why the Summit and hemispheric cooperation matters to citizens across the Americas.
The #RoadToTheSummit campaign will focus on four main pillars that will inform the Summit of the Americas process.
Champions of the Americas
Meet our champions
The Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center launched a network of regional champions that have demonstrated exceptional leadership in Latin America and the Caribbean promoting solutions for the four main pillars of the Summit of the Americas: democracy and governance; pandemic and disaster preparedness; equitable and green economic recovery; and digitalization to grow the middle class.

Summit of the Americas and the Caribbean
The Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center (AALAC) and the US Department of State (DOS) will prioritize the inclusion of all countries from across the Americas including Caribbean nations that have historically been under-represented as part of the Summit planning process. AALAC’s Caribbean Initiative is uniquely poised to draw on regional perspectives, putting smaller and larger states in the same virtual room to rethink the hemisphere’s future.
