We’re joined by Orlando Gutierrez Boronat, coordinator of Cuban Democratic Directorate and a member of the Assembly of the Cuban Resistance; Luis Zuñiga, a writer, ex-U.S. diplomat, and a former Cuban political prisoner; and Javier Larrondo, president and founder of human rights organization Prisoner Defender.

Most recently, her work is featured in a new documentary “Chasing Childhood” that explores the unintended consequences of overparenting.
