Distinguished Speaker Series: Ana Navarro
Thursday, November 15 | 6:30 PM | ASEAN Auditorium, Cabot Center
Join Tisch College for a bipartisan conversation with Republican strategist Ana Navarro and former Democratic strategist María Cristina “MC” González Noguera on the 2018 midterm election results, the youth impact, the future of American politics, and their experiences as Latinas in politics from both sides of the aisle. Ana Navarro—an avowed “Never Trump” Republican strategist, vocal supporter of DACA and Dreamers, weekly guest host on “The View,” and political contributor to CNN, CNN en Español, ABC News, and Telemundo—served as the national Hispanic co-chair for Governor Jon Huntsman’s 2012 presidential campaign and the national co-chair of John McCain’s Hispanic Advisory Council in 2008, when she was also a national surrogate for his 2008 presidential run. Navarro also served as ambassador to the UN’s Human Rights Commission and as then-Governor Jeb Bush’s first director of immigration policy. Born in Nicaragua, Navarro and her family emigrated to the United States in 1980 as a result of the Sandinista Revolution. Our moderator, MC González, served as communications director for First Lady Michelle Obama and as special assistant to President Obama before becoming the Senior Vice President of Global Public Affairs at Estée Lauder. She is a member of the Tisch College Board of Advisors.
This event is cosponsored by the Political Science Department, the Latino Center, the Tufts Republicans, the Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy, and JumboVote. Follow the conversation live at #NavarroAtTufts
