Special guest appearance & video screening: "What’s ahead for Venezuela?"


For more than 15 years Lisa Sullivan has dedicated her life to working in the barrios of Venezuela to preserve traditional indigenous culture and to implement educational and social programs. Her primary focus is on the experience and perspective of the poor and their commitment to the political process.


A Maryknoll lay missioner, Ms. Sullivan hosted the February 2004 Marin Interfaith Task Force delegation to Caracas and arranged interviews with Vice President Jose Rangel, Assembly Vice President Noeli Pocaterra, President of the Women’s Development Bank Nora Castaneda, and Minister of Health Roger Capella. She also facilitated meetings with clergy members, tour of a model clinic and discussions with volunteer Cuban doctors living and working in the barrios. A short film documentary of MITF’s 10-day a delegation has been compiled and edited by Berkeley videographer Greg O’Toole and will be included in the program.


Lisa has been a guest on President Chavez’ Alo Presidente television program and will provide an update on Venezuela’s current political climate, the recent referendum, and the future of the Bolivarian republic.
