Join CABA's Cuba Conference to delve into human rights, legal advocacy, and the Cuba case with inspiring speakers.
The Cuban American Bar Association (CABA) is gearing up for a thought-provoking one-day event that's set to make waves in the realm of international human rights and legal advocacy.
Aptly titled "International Human Rights & Legal Advocacy: The Cuba Case," this conference promises a deep dive into the fundamentals of individual human rights, the global legal framework that safeguards them, and the power of advocacy by individuals and communities.
CABA championing human rights—The Cuba case study
On Friday, October 6, 2023, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., the Florida International University College of Law in Miami will be abuzz with discussions led by a lineup of distinguished speakers. This remarkable event is not just another conference; it's an opportunity to explore, learn, and advocate for fundamental liberties.
Keynote Speaker Ambassador Armando Valladares Perez, a former Cuban political prisoner and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights will set the tone for the day.
Rosa María Payá Acevedo, a Cuban democracy activist, and Ambassador Martin Palous, the former Czech Republic Ambassador to the United Nations, will be among the notable voices. They will be joined by legal luminaries, democracy activists, musicians, and journalists, all sharing their insights on the Cuba case.
From discussions on international law mechanisms to the history of individual rights in Cuba, the role of the judiciary, and the application of human rights concepts like freedom of speech and artistic expression, this conference promises to be a unique opportunity for learning and engagement. Plus, for the legal minds in attendance, CABA is seeking Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits from the Florida Bar for each topic explored.
CABA's legacy of advocacy and inclusivity
Founded in 1974, CABA has emerged as one of Florida's largest and most influential bar associations. Its diverse membership includes lawyers and law students who are passionate about addressing human and legal rights issues that affect minority communities, not just the Cuban community.
Through initiatives like CABA Pro Bono Legal Services and the CABA Foundation, the organization extends its values to aid those in need through legal advocacy and scholarships for aspiring law students.
If this captivating conference on international human rights and legal advocacy has piqued your interest, mark your calendars for October 6, 2023, and head to the Florida International University College of Law in Miami. This event is a golden opportunity to be part of vital conversations and connect with inspiring individuals who champion human rights.
