Racial Justice

When the demand for racial justice escalated in the summer of 2020, we identified the need to create a space for Cuban-Americans to engage on the vital issue of racial justice both within our own racially diverse community and with the larger movement.

Cuban Americans for Black Lives

 In July 2020, we drafted an open letter: Cuban-Americans standing in solidarity with Black Lives initially sponsored by Miami Freedom Project, CubaOne Foundation, and Roots of Hope. We were soon joined by hundreds of Cuban-American activists, academics, and artists who added their names. Since then, we’ve continued to host virtual and in-person programs to support the community and continue engagement.
