January 25 | World Affairs Council of Western Michigan | A Honduran Surprise
Xiomara Castro won the November 28 Honduran election and there has been a peaceful transition of power. That's big news for the country and for the region.
What can be made of all this? Kurt Ver Beek, co-founder of ASJ (Association for a More Just Society), has been working with colleagues in Honduras since 1988, seeking to make the political, judicial, and policing sectors fairer and more democratic.
He'll give us some insight into what led to this election surprise, and what the future might hold as a result. We'll make sure there is generous time for q-and-a after Kurt's remarks.
Join us on Tuesday, January 25, at 12 noon EST for a free virtual convwersation and q-and-a. Register at www.worldmichigan.org/winter2022
