TPS for Venezuelans and First Steps Towards a Potential Peaceful and Democratic Solution

One of the ways we keep up with Latin American news is by following WOLA - Washington Office on Latin American. From their website: “WOLA is a leading research and advocacy organization advancing human rights in the Americas. We envision a future where public policies protect human rights and recognize human dignity, and where justice overcomes violence. WOLA tackles problems that transcend borders and demand cross-border solutions. We create strategic partnerships with courageous people making social change—advocacy organizations, academics, religious and business leaders, artists, and government officials. Together, we advocate for more just societies in the Americas.”

Recently they’ve published an update about the re-designation and extension of TPS (Temporary Protected Status) for Venezuelan citizens.

And on October 18th, they published an article about “The renewed dialogue and negotiations on Venezuela and the agreements signed on October 17, 2023, between the opposition’s Unitary Platform and the Venezuelan government represent a crucial first step towards a peaceful and democratic solution to Venezuela’s deep political and humanitarian crises.”

We found both articles informative and hopeful.

One of our many goals here at Voices is to understand as best we can what are the dynamics that are forcing people to migrate.

WOLA is a resource we use often and we recommend it. You can subscribe to their newsletter here:
