Venezuela is engulfed in crisis and the Maduro regime is increasingly isolated. As people struggle to eat or get medicine, a nearly bankrupt government is ramping up its violent response to massive protests. The National Assembly has seen its powers curtailed, and now, President Maduro has announced his intention to withdraw from the Organization of American States.

What more should Latin American governments, the United States, and the world be doing to help alleviate the crisis? What is the way forward in a crisis that reverberates beyond Venezuelan borders?

Join us on Wednesday, May 3, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. EDT for a timely and urgent discussion with the president of Venezuela's National Assembly, Julio Borges. 

A light breakfast will be provided.
