Devoted to changing U.S. policy toward the countries of the Americas by basing our relations on mutual respect, fostering dialogue with those governments and movements with which U.S. policy is at odds, and recognizing positive trends in democracy and governance.
Visiting the region. Our fact-finding missions help policy makers understand the region and hear directly the aspirations of Latin Americans from every perspective. Trips expand our knowledge and build the network of people who feed and inform CDA’s work. More info here.
We tackle tough issues: We work with policy makers whose minds are open to new approaches to Latin America, and develop strategies to better respond to the region. More info, here.
We produce the facts. From reporting on Cuba’s plans for offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, to studying the Funes presidency in El Salvador, CDA constantly brings fresh information and perspective to reforming U.S. relations in the Hemisphere. More info here.
We share what we learn and believe. CDA offers commentary and perspective, research and rapid response to journalists and the public through colloquies and public events, press releases and speeches, videos and photo galleries, via traditional media and the web. More info here.
CDA has led dozens of research trips for policy makers who interview Cubans in Havana and across the island and see for themselves the impact of U.S. policy and how to better align our goals with those of Cuba’s people. For more info, click here.
CDA has established great relationships with a broad cross-section of Venezuelan society. We encourage respectful dialogue between our two governments, report on how Venezuelans view their country’s domestic and foreign policies, and have monitored every election since 2006. More info, here.
CDA’s research missions have focused on progressive governance in El Salvador, the destructive coup in Honduras, the pursuit of constitutional reform in the region, and the impact of U.S. policy in Latin America. More info, here.
This “don’t miss it” summary and analysis of Cuba and U.S.-Cuba relations is read weekly in the White House and Congress, by journalists and activists in the U.S. and around the region. More info here.
With our knowledge and passion for the issues facing Cuba and Latin America – and our unique access to policy makers in the Executive Branch and Congress – CDA brings a fresh and effective voice to the debate on U.S. relations with the Hemisphere.
Our travel, our knowledge, our influence in Washington and access to the press – in English and Spanish, through traditional media and the web – empower CDA to help shape the debate on issues that matter to decision makers and people throughout the region.
