The Irish diaspora in America will host Sinn Féin talks about a united Ireland, Gerry Adams said today.
A senior team from the party travel to New York and San Francisco in June. Another 10 public meetings are planned across Northern Ireland in the coming weeks.
Mr Adams said: "This is part of our commitment to engage with people in Ireland and internationally about the future of Ireland and our commitment to a process of reconciliation and nation building; a national conversation about the future direction of Ireland and achieving Irish reunification."
It was confirmed today that the US conferences planned by Sinn Féin will take place on June 13 in New York and June 27 in San Francisco.
Mr Adams said it was an opportunity for people to speak directly to the Sinn Féin leadership about their hopes for the future and how political, economic and other challenges can be met.
"Democracy requires the active participation of citizens and demands that political activists engage directly with local communities.
"These meetings underline our commitment to a future based on a democracy of the people, by the people and for the people."
There will be a meeting this Sunday at St Mary's University in the Falls Road.
There have been public meetings and engagements in Dublin, Cork, Longford, Mullingar, Ennis and Kerry.
