We are sharing with you the final version of our Year 1 Assessment of the Biden-Harris Root Causes Strategy which was sent to key policymakers in the administration and Congress this morning, as well as media outlets.
This report is a grassroots critique – drawing on the lived experience and expertise of our network of partners across El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and the United States – of the progress made toward meeting the goals President Biden laid out in his Executive Order 14010 last February 2. The priorities and recommendations for action that we identified together here will provide the focus for our organizing and advocacy efforts this year.
Please share this report with your networks and any media contacts you have.
