Ms. Montanaro has twenty years of experience in Latin America solidarity movements, working first in New England for Clergy and Laity Concerned, and then on the West Coast for Global Exchange. She is the co-founder of Eco Cuba Exchange, promoting interchange between U.S. and Cuban environmental scientists, policy makers and activists.
