Roots of Hope Accepts CPAC Invitation

Roots of Hope is honored to accept an invitation to participate in the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to take place this Friday, September 23rd, in Orlando, FL. We will be presenting on a panel entitled “In the Grips of Communism: Freedom of Expression in Cuba.”

Roots of Hope is a non-partisan, non-profit organization created with the goals of raising awareness about the issues faced by young Cubans, connecting with our counterparts on the island, and empowering youth in Cuba to become the authors of their own future. We are a diverse movement of youth that represent a spectrum of ideologies.

Our participation at CPAC seeks to represent the voice of Cuban youth before a national forum. This Conference will allow us to help educate the public about issues of censorship Cuban youth face on a daily basis, while also sharing the ways our organization is making an impact in the lives of young people in Cuba. We eagerly accept invitations to share and learn from prestigious organizations with very different scopes of work, engage in healthy dialogue, and foster an increasingly diverse and collaborative Cuban community.

Roots of Hope does not endorse or support any political group, candidate, or policy.
