Call for an End to the U.S. Embargo & Blockade of Cuba.

Demand that the US Lift the 243 Punitive Sanctions on Cuba.

Take Cuba off the list of so-called State Sponsors of Terrorism.

Cuba is our Friend

These punitive measures harm the people of Cuba and prevent normal relations and exchange between the Cuban and US people.  The measures are outmoded and counterproductive, contributing to shortages of food, medicine and equipment in Cuba, blocking sources of fuel and energy to the Island,  cutting off the Island from credit and normal financial transactions.  We call for normal relations with Cuba and engagement and dialogue, not punishment.  It is unfair, and unjust, it is not who we are as a people.



Turn out with our banners, leaflets & actions we can take to call for justice. It’s just one hour out of our day. For the Cuban people, US policy has been a lifetime sentence.

Please take a minute to RSVP so we know who can come.

Cuba is Our Friend and Not our Enemy. Let Cuba Live!    

Yes, I'll Be ThereRSVP:  Yes! I’ll be there!
