Political Pasión is a community partner at this year’s Democracy in the Americas Symposium (DITAS 2014). Ditas brings together More than 500 business leaders, heads of state, prominent scholars, social innovators and leaders of government as they gather in a 2-Day Symposium to discuss ways to bolster the democratic process and create new economic development opportunities for the next generation of leaders in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as in the United States.
Featured speakers include Vinicio Cerezo, Former President of Guatemala; Luis Alberto Lacalle Herrera, Former President of Uruguay; Enrique V. Iglesias, Ibero-American Secretary General, and Yoani Sanchez, famous Generation Y Cuban blogger. In addition, we will be hearing from our local leaders such as, Tomas Regalado, Mayor of the City of Miami, Luigi Boria, Mayor of the City of Doral, Alberto Carvalho, Superintendent of Miami-Dade Public Schools and Senator George LeMieux, of the Center of Public Policy .
“Defending and strengthening democracy demands positive action from society as a whole. An event like DITAS allows us to explore ideas in a forum, which can later translate into actions that will improve the democratic process in the Americas,” said Foundation’s Chairman, Jose Zambrano.
The Americas Symposium (DITAS 2014) will take place on November 6-7 at Miami Dade College – Wolfson Campus in Downtown Miami. The registration fee is $150, including all education panels, networking cocktail and presidents’ luncheon for the 2-day symposium. To register, please visit www.ditas.org.
