U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) plans to address an audience on environmental topics impacting South Florida at a breakfast scheduled for 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on Monday, May 23 at Florida International University (FIU) in Miami.
Jointly sponsored by four organizations, “Conversation with Congressman Carlos Curbelo” is slated for the Graham Center’s Ballroom West on FIU’s campus, located at 11200 SW 8th Street.
Sponsors include the Florida State Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Environmental Defense Fund, The Nature Conservancy and Defend Our Future. The event will emphasize ways in which support for environmental responsibility is manifested by Miami and the South Florida region in general.
Rep. Curbelo has been an outspoken proponent of creating legislative response to infrastructure needs related to climate change, having been at the forefront of a movement to encourage Congress and the Republican Party to focus on environmental issues with definitive action.
The Florida State Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has facilitated networking with other chambers and supported online business ventures for Florida’s Hispanic population since 2000.
Curbelo earned both bachelor's and master's degrees in public administration from the University of Miami. He founded Capitol Gains, a government and public relations firm, and previously served on the Miami-Dade County Public Schools board.
