The ALIA release said the Liberian Diaspora talks will be held at the State Department in Washington, D.C.

It will bring together several eminent US based Liberian Community Organizations.

The Union of Liberian Associations in the Americas (ULAA), United Bassa Organizations in the Americas (UNIBOA), Liberia Ministerial Alliance of North America (LIMANA), Liberia Community in Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area and several others are expected to attend.

The initiative comes as Liberians prepare for their first peaceful transition of  democratically elected leaders since 1944.

On October 10, 2017, Liberia will hold general and presidential elections.

The 2017 Elections will climax President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s second term presidency.

President Sirleaf was re-elected for a second term in 2011.

She initially ascended to the presidency in 2005 when she was democratically elected as Liberia and Africa’s first female Head of State following the Country’s protracted civil war.
