About the Choro Festival (Chorofest)

Choro music is roots jazz from Brazil and considered Brazil’s first “urban pop” music. In this unique show, you will experience a wide range of pieces by many of Brazil’s important 20th-century composers, including Pixinguinha, Jacob do Bandolim, Chiquinha Gonzaga, Ernesto Nazareth,  and new composers such as Wagner Tiso and Alberto Rosenblit.

The Choro Festival in NYC aims to preserve and share the Choro (Crying), considered one of the oldest gender and rich instrumental music from Brazil.This style of music has been presented since the nineteenth century in all regions of the country.

Organizing for Action


Congress is working on a tax plan right now that busts the budget -- blowing a $1.5 trillion hole in our country's finances. 

What's worse is it would actually raise taxes on millions of middle class families, and set up big cuts to crucial programs like Medicare and Medicaid. All in service of ideological tax cuts that mostly go to wealthy corporations and richest one percent of people.

That's reason enough to oppose it. But wouldn't you know it, it's also terrible for the climate.

Congress' plan cuts billions from programs that are aiding our transition to clean, renewable energy like solar and wind -- industries that now employ hundreds of thousands of Americans, and are some of the fastest growing jobs in the country.

It cuts a program that helps people choose zero-pollution electric vehicles, which is especially important since the transportation sector is now our country's biggest source of the carbon pollution that causes climate change.


Right now, countries around the world are meeting to decide how to implement the Paris Climate Agreement -- the groundbreaking deal that finally united the world in the fight against climate change. But America is on the sidelines after announcing they would pull out of the agreement.

We need to be doing more to fight climate change on all fronts, not turning our back on our allies abroad, and cutting the programs that help in this effort here at home.

We deserve a prosperous clean energy future we can all benefit from. We deserve better than sacrificing that future just so we can cut taxes for a lucky few.

Say you'll fight this bad budget bill.

I'm in

SPECIAL SEMINAR ON LAVA JATO  

November 15, 2017    Time: 4:30 PM to 8:30 PM


A comprehensive discussion on key consequences of Lava Jato.  Organized by leading Brazilian  and New York law firms, separate panels will address enforcement, compliance, and due diligence issues, and how they have been impacted by Lava Jato.     
Registration - 4:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Panel 1: Anti-corruption Enforcement in Brazil and Beyond – 5:00 p.m. – 5:45 p.m.
There have been a number of recent coordinated enforcement actions involving American and Brazilian authorities.  This panel will feature the current head of the Justice Department’s Foreign Corrupt Practices Act unit, Dan Kahn, and attorneys from the private sector with extensive experience in cross-border investigations.  The panelists will address the roles and prerogatives of American and Brazilian enforcement agencies, international investigative techniques and coordination, recent enforcement trends (i.e., lessons learned from Car Wash), and practical tips for companies that are navigating multijurisdictional investigations.

Moderators:

 Panel 2: Compliance in Brazil and Beyond: a Brave New World – 5:45 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Sweeping Lava Jato investigations and other high-profile anti-corruption investigations, as well as the implementation of Brazil’s Clean Company Act, have changed the game for multinationals in Brazil, upending the political and legal landscape. This panel will explore the new compliance framework in Brazil and consider what steps companies operating or investing in Brazil should do to protect themselves and their investors, including the benefits and drawbacks tied to conducting and reporting the results of internal investigations, and whether companies should consider complying with ISO 37001.

Panel 3: Corporate M&A in the Wake of Lava Jato – 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
 As many companies come under investigation for corruption, divesting assets has become a common strategy to address the need for liquidity and/or a desire to exit the market. While this scenario creates multiple M&A opportunities in Brazil, investors worry about acquiring assets and companies that may have corruption-related liabilities or that are under investigation by Brazilian or US authorities. This panel will focus on due diligence issues that come up in these transactions and ways to minimize liabilities.
