Transdiaspora Network supported as a partner the United Nations’ 75th anniversary campaign which aimed to launch the biggest-ever global conversation in 2020. The UN75 initiative, launched by United Nations Secretary-General Antόnio Guterres in January 2020, was spearheaded by the UN75 Office under Fabrizio Hochschild, Under-Secretary-General and Special Adviser. Our President/CEO/Founder Ariel Rojas assisted the team in their engagement strategy and elicited compelling dialogues inspired by civil society’s local young leaders in the New York metropolitan area. He was featured in this documentary “Call to Participation” commissioned by the UN Secretary-General office.
