The Caribbean Guyana Institute for Democracy ("CGID") is a not for profit, non-partisan think-tank that was founded in 2000. Its primary goals are to promote the strengthening and institutionalization of democratic values in Guyana and the Caribbean. A cardinal tenet of CGID's philosophy is that freedom, peace, and prosperity cannot be attained without an open society and a democratic way of life.
CGID's mission is to: promote democratic governance, social justice and national development; and to foster a harmonious, open society in which there is equal opportunity for all, the rule of law is supreme and the immutable human rights of all citizens are fully respected; and to promote a society in which free speech, freedom of the press, association and all other human freedoms flourish as a facet of national life.

LAURA JOHNSTON KOHL
Laura Johnston Kohl grew up as an activist in Washington, D.C., and watched as many of her heroes were assassinated in the 1960s. While she was in high school and college, John Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and others were killed. That had a huge impact on her.
