The U.S.-Cuba Democracy PAC (“PAC”) is pleased to announce the creation of its new Young Leaders Group (“YLG”).
The YLG is composed of dynamic young professional and student leaders (under-35) with a proven commitment to democracy, human rights and the rule of law. The founding Board of Directors is composed of members from Miami, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Atlanta.
“The passion and enthusiasm of these young leaders is not only inspiring to me, but proves that we are passing the torch with a stronger flame than ever,” said Gus Machado, co-founder and Treasurer of the PAC.
The YLG will play a key role in the PAC’s policy discussions, community outreach and social media.
“I look forward to working together with these young leaders to ensure that human rights and democracy remain at the forefront of U.S.-Cuba policy,” said Mauricio Claver-Carone, 37-year old co-founder and Director of the PAC.
