Our members and affiliates work together to create an opportunity for the people of our region, both individuals and organizations, to engage in mutually beneficial exchanges with the people of Cuba. Despite decades of travel restrictions, hardships and the illegal, crippling, economic blockade, we have continued our work to engage in peaceful and constructive activities with our counterparts in Cuba.
President Obama's easing of travel restrictions and restarting diplomatic channels to Cuba create new opening for diverse opportunities and exchanges that allow us to expand our relationships and understandings of realities in both of our societies.
If you are curious about Cuba, please join us, we help people go to Cuba, and hope you will help us bring Cubans to Pittsburgh to share their experiences in building a different more socially compassionate and environmentally sustainable model for human society. Cuba is the only county in the world that has a zero environmental footprint. Healthcare, education, social equality are fundamental human rights in Cuba. We have much to learn from the 'forbidden island.'
Join us to learn more about Cuba, and meet the Cuban people as we partner to build a better world for all humanity. We are the 'Pittsburgh-Matanzas Sister Cities Partnership' and have been working proudly for over 20 years in our shared goals to support of the Cuban people's determination to create a better world.
