The MSC L.T. Jordan Institute for International Awareness has partnered with the Venezuelan Student Association to bring Venezuelan Ambassador to the United States, CARLOS VECCHIO, to Texas A&M to discuss the humanitarian and political crisis in Venezuela and the fight to restore democracy.

Join us for a historic talk with Ambassador to the United States, Carlos Vecchio — the foremost activist for the Venezuelan cause here in the U.S. The press release is now LIVE; to read more about this event and what major points Venezuelan Ambassador Carlos Vecchio will discuss, click here.
Tickets are available for $5 online or at the MSC Box Office.
