Description/Abstract of your Event: 

This event will feature the Acting Ambassador of Cuba to the United Nations, Ana Silvia Rodriguez. She will give a short presentation, along with the other panelists, but the large part by far of the event will be direct interaction with the meeting attendees and participants on any and every question on people's minds: the impact of Donald Trump's anti-Cuba moves on Cuba's economy and US-Cuban relations; the new Cuban Constitution; democratic and human rights and the US embargo and blockade; LGBT rights; the African-Cuban history and experience; Cuba and Latin America; and so on. Panelists will include recent US travelers to Cuba and Venezuela.
