Regional Politics of Latin America and U.S. - Latin American Relations
March 20, 2013
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EDT
Videoconference and Fox Chapel Area High School, 611 Field Club Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15238
Present a Regional Seminar and Video Conference for high school students
Today questions regarding Latin America’s future have captured the conversation about the region. As the international community drives attention to the state of women, how will a relaxed Cuba affect the gender equality conversation? What will Latin American politics be like post-Chavez? As the region deals with these questions, what will the role of the United States be?
Join us for a two-part regional seminar. First, a video conference with Ms. Sarah Stephens from the Center of Democracy for the Americas to explore Cuba’s role in Latin America. Second, breakout sessions at Fox Chapel Area (not video conferenced) will discuss range of topics on how technology is impacting the role of civil society to Spanish only sessions, among others.
Sarah Stephens is the Executive Director of the Center for Democracy in the Americas (CDA), which she launched in 2006. A long-time human rights advocate, she began her work in the 1980s at El Rescate, a center for Central American refugees in Los Angeles, then worked for the Hollywood Women’s Political Committee on human rights issues. She later founded and directed Artists for a Hate Free America, an entertainment industry-backed organization geared toward encouraging youth involvement in human rights and civil rights issues.In her current capacity, Ms. Stephens works with U.S. policymakers, journalists, and others to change the debate on U.S. foreign policy toward the Western Hemisphere. She has spoken widely across Latin America and Congress, including appearances before Congress to advocate changes in U.S. policy towards Cuba. Her commentary has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Christian Science Monitor, Washington Times, Huffington Post, and the Havana Note.
There is no charge for this Regional Seminar. Confirmation details will be sent upon registration. Please register online by March 15, 2013.
