MASSACHUSETTS – The Authentic Caribbean Foundation (ACF) will present Part 2 of its Caribbean COVID-19 Update discussion forum: Re-opening of Caribbean States, featuring Ambassadors of  several Caribbean Countries and other community leaders.

The Zoom Town Hall will take place on Tuesday July 7, 2020 at 4pm and will be streamed live on various platforms including the Authen Caribe Facebook Page as well as its Instagram Page, Authentic Foundation.

The discussion will focus on what reopening will mean to Caribbean states against the background of the Covid-19 Pandemic as they seek to balance lives and livelihoods.

The panel will also explore the impact on the Diaspora. Foremost on the mind of the Diaspora interests are the level of engagement and action needed to provide support and resources where needed and how to mobilize these resources.

Additionally, the panel will also examine issues around youth development, food security and the trade of Caribbean goods in the state of Massachusetts and across the wider United States.
