What do Young Cuban Women Have to Say

Listen to the Women "Actionar".

What is an Actionar? It's a webinar focused on taking action online. Hear from young Cuban women and what they have to say about Cuba. After that, we will lead one simple action that everyone takes together, followed by a debrief and a discussion about next steps.

During President Biden’s campaign, he promised he would move to undo Trump’s harmful sanctions and normalize relations. So far, he has done nothing but apply more sanctions! The Cuban people are suffering, especially during the pandemic. Join us in pressuring women leaders in the U.S to end the inhumane blockade on the island.

We will feature three guests:

Yadira Escobar:
