2017 Venceremos Brigade

“The Venceremos Brigade (VB) is a political education project that, since 1969, has directed its efforts toward developing solidarity with the Cuban Revolution. Despite the U.S. blockade against Cuba, the VB has sent more than 9,000 people from across the U.S., striving to send highly diverse contingents. The VB works to raise consciousness around issues related to Cuba such as democracy, social justice and the role of U.S. imperialism, while working within the larger U.S. Cuba solidarity movement and striving to strengthen its unity and broaden its influence. The VB considers travel to Cuba to be our right and has never requested a license from the U.S. government. The 48th Contingent of the Venceremos Brigade is an education project hosted by the Cuban Institute for Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP). It will be a Travel Challenge, following the success of 13 previous Travel Challenges spearheaded by the Venceremos Brigade and IFCO Pastors for Peace. “
