March 11-12, 2023: International US-Cuba Normalization Conference in New York
The National Network on Cuba is pulling out all the stops to make this a large and hopefully very successful event. Special emphasis is being placed on the goal of attracting fresh blood into the Cuba solidarity movement, so organizers are doing a lot of outreach esp. trying to attract young people to attend the conference. Some local Cuba committees are organizing group watch events so that folks can gather and watch/participate in the conference together. We may try to organize a group watch event here in Seattle.

All Year: Campaign to Get Cuba off the State Sponsor of Terrorism List.
Along with our sister Cuba solidarity organizations around the country, a primary focus of our work this year will be a multi-faceted campaign to get Cuba off the U.S. Government's State Sponsor of Terrorism List. Cuba is certainly not a state sponsor of terrorism, but the placing of Cuba on the list causes significant harm to Cuba both diplomatically and economically. We'll be sharing information and involvement possibilities as the campaign develops this year.
Seattle/Cuba Friendship Committee Meetings
We usually meet (virtually, via Zoom) at least once per month. Please contact the Seattle/Cuba Friendship Committee for an invitation, or for more information about our work:
