Be a part of the Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba!

The 27th Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba is coming to a city near you.  We will travel through the US from July 5-15.

The Caravan will educate about the important role US citizens can play in lifting the US blockade of Cuba and the travel ban. We will visit congressional offices and invite caravan event organizers and supporters to join us in these meetings.

This is a critical year in US-Cuba relations. Our attention will focus on advocating for Cuba here in the US; not collecting humanitarian aid. Our Cuban partners have told us that what they need most at this moment are our voices in solidarity.

We need you to meet with your Representatives and Senators when the caravan comes to your city. Our elected officials need to hear directly from you, their constituents! Members of Congress need to know that they represent people who support Cuba with no preconditions. Many legislators don’t have an opinion on Cuba or know much about Cuba, so this is a great time for you to share with them why you support Cuba and why US-Cuba relations must be fully normalized while respecting Cuba’s sovereignty.
