USCIS Stakeholder Meeting on Ethiopian Adoptions

White Oak Conference Room
20 Massachusetts Ave, NW
Washington, DC 20529
The USCIS International Operations Division and the Office of Public Engagement invite you to participate in a stakeholder meeting in which we will brief on some of the findings of the recent interagency site visit to Addis Ababa to review Ethiopian adoptions. Members of the USCIS and the Department of State team that visited Ethiopia will provide the briefing and answer questions about its content.
This engagement will be available to any interested parties by teleconference and webinar with a small number of in-person participants. Due to space constraints, in-person participation will be by invitation only. We request that in-person invitees send a single representative to attend in-person unless requesting clearance for a second in advance.
