Multiple countries in Latin America have experienced massive protests and/or change in governance in the last year, with significant human rights implications. This forum will help attendees understand what is happening now in Venezuela and elsewhere, from UNO faculty with expertise in political and social issues in Latin America.
This event is co-sponsored by the Goldstein Center for Human Rights, the Office of Latino/Latin American Studies(OLLAS), and the UNO Chapter of the United Nations Student Association.
The name of the series, Charla, means "chat" in English. Established in 2003, the series was created to engage the UNO and greater Omaha community in informed and informal conversations about Latino and Latin American related issues. Each event in the series is free and open to the public.
