Program in Cuba
This year we will travel to Eastern Cuba visiting the provinces of Santiago and Guantanamo. We will learn about the impact of the illegal US Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay. We will also witness how Cuba has recovered from the devastation of Hurricane Matthew in October 2016 and learn how Cuba prepares in advance for hurricanes.
We will travel in the footsteps of some revolutionary heros, visiting the mountainous rural area known as the Second Front during the revolutionary war, as well as the final resting place of Fidel Castro in Santiago. Our visit will include participation in the July 26th celebration of the 65th anniversary of the attack on the Moncada Barracks that Cubans celebrate as the very beginning of their revolution.

June 22, 2018: Dare to Dream movie
The Seattle/Cuba Friendship Committee sponsored a showing of the film Dare to Dream at the Washington State Labor council offices. This inspirational 30-minute movie that tells the story of the largest medical school in the world, the Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM) in Havana, Cuba through the eyes of US students who received full scholarships from the Cuban government with the commitment to practice medicine in under-served communities.
The film was accompanied by informational talks by Seattle/Cuba Friendship Committee Secretary John Waller, Committee member Stephanie Sarantos, and Nyema Clark, who traveled to Cuba last year with a delegation from Seattle's New Hope Baptist Church.
