Support the Center for a Free Cuba this #GivingTuesday.

Today, people across the world are giving to help make a difference. #GivingTuesday began in 2012 as a simple idea, to dedicate one day of the year to live more generously. It sparked a global movement that unites people by the millions with the principle of radical generosity, “the idea that the suffering of others should be as intolerable to us as our own suffering.”

There are currently over 1,067 political prisoners and prisoners of conscience jailed in Cuba.

Among them, 34 are children, 30 boys and 4 girls, with 28 serving sentences and the other 8 awaiting sentencing.

The Center for a Free Cuba (CFC) was founded in 1997 to reject the normalization of the suffering of Cubans in the island by a decades old dictatorship by supporting the inalienable right of Cubans to their own rights, urging persons of goodwill to amplify the voices of the Cuban people, and mobilizing democratic governments around the world to institute policies that encourage genuine change in Cuba. 

Thanks to the support of people like you it was possible for CFC in 2023 to send medicines to families of jailed dissidents; provide needed smartphones, and laptops; and provide internet access to keep information flowing in and out of the island.

A friend of the Center has pledged a matching gift challenge of up to $10,000. Any donation received by December 31, 2023, will be matched dollar for dollar. That means that your $100 contribution will be worth $200, and a $1,000 contribution will be matched for a contribution of $2000. The more you can give, the more your gift will benefit the Center.

CFC with your help was also able to denounce the Castro dictatorship’s weaponization of migration in The Hill; called on the Biden Administration to hold accountable Cuban terrorists that killed four U.S.human rights activists in the Miami Herald; served as a bridge so that filmmakers and relatives of political prisoners both in Cuba could denounce systematic and gross human rights violations the premiere of the documentaryFreedom Within“; held a press conference during the UN General Assembly in New York where independent journalist Orelvys Cabrera, who was a victim and witness of police brutality, spoke, and a petition signed by over two thousand Cuban and international personalities calling for Cuba’s expulsion from the UN Human Rights Council was made available; CFC’s president exposed Havana’s connections to Islamic terrorism in his article “Jihad: Cuba’s Role” published by the Jewish Policy Center;.and CFC submitted a report for Cuba’s quinquennial Universal Periodic Review, and co-hosted a side event in Geneva exposing the dictatorship’s crimes. 

On this #GivingTuesday, we hope you will support CFC’s ongoing mission and goal of facilitating a nonviolent transition to a Cuba that respects human rights and political and economic freedoms.
