Change Makers: Promoting Community Resilience Against Radicalization and Extremism
September 30, 2017 - October 5, 2017
CCWA will be hosting a multi-regional delegation from Australia, Indonesia, Netherlands, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and Turkey on a program that will uncover how different sectors of American society work together to resist extremism and build stronger communities. Participants, who have varied backgrounds in cybercrime, municipal governance, and research, will explore prisoner rehabilitation strategies and the private sector’s role in building community resilience to violence in Cleveland. By meeting with nonprofits, academic institutions, government agencies, and local and national law enforcement agents, this program will expose visitors to positive change makers in Cleveland.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
