The 2013 People’s Global Action on Migration, Development and Human Rights (PGA) is an independent civil society and grassroots people’s process held in conjunction with the 2013 UN High Level Dialogue on Migration & Development (HLD).
This year, the PGA will be held on 30 September (Monday) – 4 October (Friday), at the Church Center of the UN (CCUN), in New York, USA. Activities will include a labor & community march and rally across the Brooklyn Bridge, major plenaries by international grassroots leaders and notable dignitaries, self-organized workshops, government lobbying visits, art displays, cultural events and numerous other activities.
The primary theme for the 2013 PGA is “People, Power & Communities: Building Bridges for Migrant, Labour & Human Rights.” The PGA program will highlight the ongoing struggle around the world to end institutionalized criminalization against migration, a critique of circular migration and temporary worker policies, a focus on people-centered community development programs, and building our transnational movements across borders.
Some lawyers from the MFA network will be part of the MFA delegation to the PGA and HLD events.
