FRIDA Partners With UNAM-LA For Important Political Summit

15 Jun

In case you were unaware, Obama and Romney aren’t the only notable politicians running in 2012. This year also marks a very important election in Mexico. And no matter who you pledge your support to (right now there are four candidates), it’s always important to stay educated. That’s why we’re proud to partner with UNAM-LA as co-sponsors for a series of important discussions.

Taking place at the Mexican General Consulate in downtown L.A., the Mexico 2012 Electoral Observatory features an amazing array of speakers delivering their take on voting trends, the electoral process and the future of Mexico. So far, noted scholars like Lorenzo Cordoba Vianello and Francisco Guerrero Aguirre have lent their opinions and there are many more notables to come.

On Monday June 18, Francisco Abundis Luna and Jorge Buendia Laredo will be holding an in-depth analysis of the country’s voting trends. Their lecture will begin at 6pm and promises to make for a VERY informative evening.

On August 10, Leonardo Curzio and Ciro Murayama will discuss the outcome of the election and open the floor to political discussions. A similar presidential recap will take place on September 28, with speakers Constancio Carrasco Daza, Salvador Nava Gomar and Manuel Gonzalez Oropeza.

These are all dates that we highly recommend adding to your calendars or you can print out the flyer we’ve attached to the blog. Admission to the UNAM events are completely free and, as co-sponsors, you can bet we’ll providing plenty of FRIDA appetizers and refreshments.

We’d love to see you there!
