O Consulado Geral de Cabo Verde em Boston e a Universidade de Bridgewater têm a honra e o previlégio de informar que por iniciativa conjunta vai realizar-se no dia 27 de Outubro,  a primeira Conferência sobre a Deportação de cidadãos Cabo-verdianos dos Estados Unidos da América.

O objectivo da Conferencia é, a partir de dados concretos, proporcinar uma oportunidade de reflexão  que conduza a uma melhor capacitação de todos os envolvidos no processo, por forma a levarem a cabo acções e recomendações específicas  que contribuam para uma redução substancial  dos números e do impacto social do problema. Esperamos também com esta Conferência, abrir um diálogo profícuo com as autoridades competentes americanas sobre regras e princípios a serem adoptados, e sobre programas de re-integração social dos deportados.

A Conferência terá uma audiência de cerca de uma centena de participantes entre líderes comunitarios, representantes das autoridades locais e estaduais bem como individuos e organizações que lidam directa ou indirectamente com deportados e seus familares.

Nas suas apresentações, os panelistas que incluem  investigadores, entidades governamentais e outros especialistas sobre a temática de Deportação de Cabo-verdianos dos Estados Unidos, colocarão a tónica sobre o impacto social da Deportação, e à luz da legislação actual,  reflectir sobre  medidas que deverão ser adoptadas no futuro.

Os lugares são limitados e a sua inscrição (feita por ordem do registo) é necessária para participar. O evento é gratuito e será servido um almoço.

Why attend a Conference on Deportation?

  • Because we want to learn more from each other
  • Because not all individuals that are deported are violent criminals
  • Mothers are deported too
  • Undocumented individuals are deported too
  • Because as a society we should share responsibility
  • Because Deportation affects mothers, wifes, husbands, siblings and specially children
  • Because we can do something to lessen the social impact
  • Because we will not be pointing fingers but looking for solutions
  • Because we care
