U.S.-Cuba Democracy PAC Announces "Young Leaders Group"

New Group Will Play Key Role in Policy, Community Outreach and Social Media

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.

(Below is the official Mission Statement, Agenda and Biographies of its founding Directors.)

The U.S.-Cuba Democracy PAC is a non-connected, non-partisan, federal political action committee dedicated to the promotion of an unconditional transition in Cuba to democracy, the rule of law and the free market. It is the single-largest foreign-policy political committee in the U.S. and the largest Hispanic political committee in history.

Mission Statement

The US-Cuba Democracy PAC Young Leaders Group ("YLG") is a group of young professionals and students who work to promote democratic values, human rights and the rule of law as the cornerstone of US-Cuba policy. The YLG is dedicated to spreading awareness among young Americans regarding the brutality of the Castro dictatorship and the courageous efforts of Cuba's young, vibrant and diverse pro-democracy movement. Its mission will continue until a free and democratic future is ensured for all Cubans.
