Andrés Guilarte is a political activist for the freedom of Venezuela. Only a few years ago, he was a university student, studying international relations at the Central University of Venezuela. On top of exams and typical college student concerns, Andrés’ studies were interrupted by tear gas as government officials targeted students on campus. He spent his college years advocating for his fellow students and fighting back against the rise of tyranny and erosion of freedoms.
In early 2019, he left Venezuela to intern with the Cato Institute in Washington, D.C. Today, he is touring the United States on behalf of The Fund for American Studies sharing his story with collegiate audiences.
