The usual struggles for basic needs such as food security, drought resulting in agricultural failure, access to shelter in urban communities and access to resources are some of the most pressing challenges facing Africa today. Despite these challenges, Africa has become influential in the context of climate change, global politics and epidemics (Ebola).

Students in Latin America
Gladys McCormick

I am Maxwell.

“Our relationship with Mexico and Latin America is about a lot more than immigration and protecting our border. It is complicated by our deep economic connectedness with Mexico, which has eclipsed China as our largest trade partner. Our economies are profoundly integrated. Any interruption in trade would be catastrophic to the Mexican economy, and would be harmful to several U.S. industries.”
