Americas Society / Council of the Americas

May 18, 2017



A Celebration featuring AQ's Top 5 Border Ambassadors

Join the discussion on Twitter: #ThisIsTheBorder

Despite a common border and more than two decades of shared prosperity and partnership, the U.S.-Mexico relationship faces new challenges. Join Americas Quarterly as we launch our latest issue on the economic, political, and cultural ties that bind the two neighbors. Panelists will include honorees from our Top 5 Border Ambassadors feature, who will discuss where U.S.-Mexico relations go from here. A reception with live music, food, and drinks will follow the discussion.
