Minnesota Cuba Day: A Chat with the Cuban Ambassador and Minnesota Leaders

Wondering what's going on in Cuba today?
Cuban Ambassador to the United States, Lianys Torres Rivera, headlines a discussion about the current state of affairs in Cuba.
The event will also be live streamed on this Facebook page and available later on the WAMM and cubaminrex cu YouTube channels.
After 20 months of pandemic restrictions, Cuba is reopening and preparing to ease travel restrictions to the island on November 15. This is a good time for Minnesotans to learn about how Cuba is functioning today and, despite the punishing 60-year blockade by the United States, is battling Covid and climate change and continuing to work toward the betterment of its people.
Minnesotans have long been interested in Cuba, with many having traveled there; they have also proposed and passed governmental resolutions, engaged in medical collaboration and assistance, traded agricultural goods and knowledge, and have reached out in many other ways. This meeting will be an opportunity to build on those efforts.
Panelists will include:
-Nachito Herrera, Cuban-American and renowned musician who survived Covid with the help of Cuban and University of Minnesota doctors
-Kevin Paap, President, Minnesota Farm Bureau
-Senator Sandy Pappas, author of legislative resolutions opposing the blockade
-Dr. Teddie Potter, University of Minnesota School of Nursing
-Dr. John Oswald, Adjunct Professor, University of Minnesota School of Public Health
-Ofunshi Raudemar ACT DDHH, Cuban-American Babalawo from the Yoruba religious tradition
-Daniel Menocal, Third Secretary, Cuban Embassy in the United States
There will be time for discussion with Ambassador Lianys Torres Rivera as well as questions and answers from the audience. This is an unusual opportunity to engage directly with the ambassador on these issues.
