The importance of our work to build bridges and educate all US citizens about the injustices of the US economic blockade of Cuba was starkly evident during December when PayPal temporarily blocked our account to investigate whether the work we do is legal. We educated them further about our organization (and the rights of US citizens to lobby for changes to US policies) and they have restored out account, but this episode is a graphic reminder that our educational work is vital.

Cuba Travel Challenge
We use donations toward our mission goal of building a strong women's movement dedicated to mutually beneficial US–Cuba relations. We strongly support freedom of travel to Cuba and an end to the US economic blockade of Cuba.
Specifically, contributions will fund: scholarships for low income women to travel and participate in events and conferences that educate about US–Cuba relations, including scholarships for travel with Cuba delegations; speaking tour expenses (travel and per diem) for Cuban women visitors to the US hosted by the Collaboration and co-sponsors; and development of educational materials about the reality of Cuban women's lives and US–Cuba relations for distribution at organizational events and conferences.
The Collaboration's fiscal sponsor is the Center for Action Research (CAR), a 501c3 organization. Your tax-deductable donations may be made by credit card at PayPal or by check.Click on PayPal, above, or write a check to CAR-Hermanas and mail to:
