The Administrative Law class of the University of Guam’s Master of Public Administration program, PA-540, will be hosting a virtual political status forum at 11am this Saturday titled “Guam’s Political Status: Where We Are Now and Where We Can Be Tomorrow.”  

The forum comes on the heels of H.R. 1 (For the People Act of 2021) and H.R. 2070 and S. 865, both relative to the self-determination of Puerto Rico, which were introduced in Congress earlier this year seeking to address injustices in the U.S. territories and as Guam continues to explore self-determination and decolonization. The forum seeks to foster discussion and a better understanding of the insular cases and their implications to the U.S. territories, specifically Guam.  

The panelists and guest speakers will consist of political and legal experts as well as scholars who will help guide the discussion. 

• Guam Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero;

• Anita Sukola, retired judge of the Superior Court of Guam; 

• Guam  Attorney General Leevin Camacho;

• Carlyle Corbin, international advisor on self-governance and former United Nations; representative from the U.S. Virgin Islands;  

• Robert A. Underwood, president emeritus of the University of Guam; 

• Ronald L. McNinch, associate professor of Public Administration at the University of Guam.

• Thomas W. Krise, president of the University of Guam; 

• Annette T. Santos, dean of UOG’s School of Business and Public Administration; 

• John Rivera, program director of UOG’s Master of Public Administration Program; 

• Neil Weare, president and founder of Equally American. 

The virtual forum will take place from 11am to 1pm this Saturday, May 8. Those interested in tuning in may register at http://bit.ly/UOGMPA-PA540.
