Voices of the Americas' purpose is that of creating a forum in which the distinct ethnic communities of Chicago can partake in dynamic cultural activities that will promote unity and harmony. One of Casa Guatemala's top priorities is a commitment to diversity. "The Program is designed to promote diversity, in the multi-ethnic-collage that is Chicago"-Julio Revolorio, former Executive Director.

The opening event: "Noche Cubana" will feature two Cuban academics currently touring the U.S.: Yanelis Martinez Herrera, law student at the University of Havana, and Javier Dueños Oguendo, journalism professor at the University of Havana. The student and professor team will be speaking about Cuba, more than 40 years after the Revolution.
