Cultural Thursday: An Insider’s Perspective on Venezuela

March 5 Cultural THURSDAY “An Update on Venezuela” ~Rosymar Hjermstad
In conjunction with International Women’s Day Events, Rosymar Hjermstad , who is originally from Venezuela, would like to give us an update on what is currently happening in her native country. Since the Bolivarian Revolution of 1999, there has been great upheaval in this Spanish-speaking South American nation. By mid-2019, over four million Venezuelans, ~13% of the country’s population, have left the country or emigrated (most of them in the last five years). Because the United States has levied economic sanctions against this country for the past several years, it is important for us to have regular updates and a better understanding of this country’s ongoing political and economic crisis. Rosymar Hjermstad is the Project Director of the Strengthening Institution Program/Title III Grant entitled Raider Connect Services at Central Lakes College. https://youtu.be/NC0ZvTz2sT4
