2002: WPI Cosponsors First National Summit On Cuba

On September 17, 2002, the World Policy Institute cosponsored the first National Summit on Cuba at the National Press Club in Washington. The National Summit brought together more than 380 national leaders and 48 speakers to explore how changes in U.S. policy toward Cuba could better serve our national interests. Bush administration representatives attended and spoke at the conference. On day two of the summit, 500 Cuban Americans participated in a daylong educational effort to share their views on U.S. policy with members of Congress and the administration.
