10:30 am - 12:00 pm



Join CSIS Americas for a public discussion on the role of the Venezuelan diaspora and how it can best organize and take action to provide support for Venezuela. Since 2014, Venezuela has endured an unprecedented political, economic, social, and humanitarian crisis resulting in the largest exodus in Venezuela’s history. About 2.5 million Venezuelans have fled the country in the last few years, with many more expected to flee as the country’s economy continues to implode. There are estimated to be about 4 million Venezuelans currently living abroad.

This event will focus on the strength of such diaspora, including their increasing presence in Latin America and the United States. We will discuss practical tools and policy options for Venezuelans to engage in mitigating the humanitarian crisis in their home country, including the role of Venezuelan doctors, independent cryptocurrencies, social media platforms, and other tools to alleviate the suffering of the Venezuelan people. The discussion will be moderated by CSIS Associate Director and Venezuelan expert Moises Rendon.
