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. 

Campaign pillars

The #RoadToTheSummit campaign will focus on four main pillars that will inform the Summit of the Americas process.
